A genius so assured he could write operas faster than secretaries could copy them, a genius so original even Bach cribbed his melodies, a genius so unconventional that his conflicting roles -- Catholic priest and creative renegade; cultural iconoclast and establishment favorite -- still shock people today, Antonio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741) remains an artist without equal. Now he comes to exuberant life in the new drama The Red Priest of Venice at the Shelton Theater. Today best known for The Four Seasons, Vivaldi was one of the most brilliant figures of the baroque period, a composer whose life was as passionate and stormy as his music. Compelling and humorous, this 90-minute show focuses on a critical period in his life when he began writing his most dazzling masterpiece ... and when he fell under the spell of two equally dazzling ladies.

Indigo Don’t Vote
By Andrew Ward and Gabriel Goldstein
Directed by Matthew Shelton
Review from SF Weekly:
“The Kafka-esque scenario of Indigo Don’t Vote, a dark staged comedy written by Andrew Ward and Gabriel Goldstein, is eerily similar to Steven Spielberg’s film The Terminal: Each work includes a Third World country that has ceased to exist, an airplane, and an oft-repeated catchword that sums up the quirky circumstances — The Terminal’s ‘unacceptable’ to Indigo’s ‘discontinued.’ The main characters in the two stories, however, react to the vanished countries in wholly different ways. One falls in love with Catherine Zeta-Jones and eats gift-shop crackers; the other, an inert loafer who ‘lacks the passion to pursue anything,’ is finally motivated to warn against a world that seems to be disappearing. He turns to friends, a senator, a psychiatrist, the media, and anarchists for help with the sticky problem of ‘non-ness’ — and receives a predictable zilch. Written in 2002 against the backdrop of troops massing in Iraq, the play presents a new modern malaise: that of disappearing through the information gap.”
