The weather was beautiful. I wore normal clothes, and I was freezing. Seriously, bring a heavy coat and an extra pair of socks. It was probably 55-60 degrees in the theater..

This was an enjoyable production. Great set and costumes and very strong lead performers. The supporting cast was a bit hit or miss, but all in all it's worth seeing.

A gripping production. Edward Gero did a masterful job and Sasha Olinick was fascinating to watch in all the different poses and moods Peter Shaffer chooses to show us. The play has aged well.

Wonderful production of a great show! If you can sit really close (as we did), you'll appreciate the fine acting even more.

Quotes & Highlights

The original 1980 Broadway production of _Amadeus _ran for nearly three years and more than 1,100 performances and won five Tony Awards.
The 1984 film adaptation won eight Oscars, including Best Picture.


When your hard-earned fame has been surpassed by a brilliantly gifted, potty-mouthed golden boy, what else can you do but smile to his face while secretly plotting his downfall? Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, winner of seven Tony Awards ‑ including Best Play ‑ and the Oscar for Best Picture, depicts the flamboyant genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as seen through the eyes of his desperately jealous contemporary, composer Antonio Salieri.

With Edward Gero (Nixon’s Nixon_) as Antonio Salieri, Sasha Olinick (_Around the World in 80 Days, The Talented Mr. Ripley_) as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Laura C. Harris (_26 Miles) as Constanze Weber, and DC theatre favorite Floyd King as Emperor Joseph II. _ _ Mark Ramont, from Ford’s Theatre, directs a towering story of greed, obsession, and guilt set to the glorious music of revenge.
