Joy, sorrow, elation -- from the moment it was written, Mozart's music has inspired a host of emotions. Amadeus, the brilliant stage play by Sir Peter Shaffer, focuses on one response: jealousy. Travel back to the Austrian imperial court where the emperor's chosen composer, Antonio Salieri, reigns supreme until the arrival of a daring young talent, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Coarse, foul-mouthed and graceless, Mozart is everything that Salieri is not, including (of course) a genius. Awarded the Best Play Tony in 1981, Amadeus returns to the stage on the 30th anniversary of its Academy-Award-winning film adaption by Milos Forman. City Lights Theater Company presents this provocative and thrilling tale from the celebrated writer of Equus and Black Comedy. Learn More

Playdates — They're not just for kids!
This hilarious farce by Billy Aronson explores our “hidden” selves and sheds light on the concept of suburbia. It follows an outrageous group of dedicated elementary school parents that give new meaning to the term “physical education.” As the children head off for their first day of school, their parents decide to try a “first” of their own behind closed doors. Their naughty new ritual brings laughter and self-discovery to the adult participants.
Playwright Billy Aronson is credited with the original concept for the musical Rent and a writer for MTV’s Beavis and Butthead.
