By Michael Hollinger
Directed by Brendon Fox
Ex-violist Michael Hollinger trades in his bow for a pen in this a tart and witty chamber piece about the politics and passions that threaten a classical string quartet.
In front of an audience they’re pitch-perfect but behind the scenes the Lazara string quartet is coming unstrung — all on the eve of their first televised performance for the President of the United States. There’s sex, there’s drugs, there’s…chamber music, but the real rewards lie in Hollinger’s insights into the balancing act of drudgery, machination and volatile genius that make a seemingly effortless performance possible.
