WEST COAST PREMIERE
TWO MEN’S PASSIONATE QUEST FOR ONE WOMAN
This new musical re-telling of George Bernard Shaw’s Candida questions Victorian notions of love and marriage amidst the swirl of a love triangle.
Candida, the strong-willed and beautiful wife of Reverend James Morrell, returns home to London, from a trip to the country, with a young poet who wants to rescue her from what he presumes to be a dull family life. As Reverend Morrell finally recognizes what he might lose, Candida has to decide what she wants to gain, and choose between them. Filled with lush 19th century ballads, this well-known story questions what it is that a woman really desires from a man.
The most important new musical since The Light in the Piazza… To say that you mustn't miss it is to grossly understate the case. —The Wall Street Journal
