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

I didn't know the story and expected something more interesting. The story itself is pretty boring. The actors were great, except the ending (he shouldn't wipe his hands on the stage it brokel know what I'm taling about if you will see the play).
By Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by Brian Friel
Hedda returns from her honeymoon dissatisfied, anticipating a life of tedious convention. Aided and abetted by her predatory confidante, Judge Brack, she begins to manipulate the fates of those around her to devastating effect. Brian Friel’s new version – taking liberties that only a master playwright might – invests Ibsen’s social realist original with psychological truth, presenting Hedda’s gradual mental breakdown as the inevitable consequence of an entirely inflexible social structure.
