Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

This radically original fusion of movement and theater explores 100 years in the life of North Beach nightspot Tosca Café, conjuring a world in which love, betrayal, and hope emerge from the shadows and disappear with the clink of a glass. __The Tosca Project __brings world-renowned dancers from San Francisco Ballet, including prima ballerina Sabina Allemann, together with such acclaimed actors as The Overcoat‘s Peter Anderson and A.C.T.’s own Jack Willis (Rock ‘n’ Roll). Loosely structured around the themes of Puccini’s Tosca, this imaginative new work is gorgeously choreographed, achingly moving, and scored with some of the best music ever made, from Hendrix to Stravinsky.
