MEDEA  by Euripides
directed by Mark Stringham

November 6-29, 2015

Medea and her two children wait in exile for her heroic husband to secure a place for them,

only to find out that he has abandoned them for the King's daughter.

With her imminent banishment, divorcement from her only love,

and separation from her two children drawing nigh, Medea has twenty-four hours

to exact revenge and reclaim the only thing she has left: her life.


THE SEAGULL  by Anton Chekhov
directed by Allan S. Ross

February 12- March 6, 2016

Amid the weariness of life in the country, the famous actress Arkadina presides over a household

riven with desperate love, dreams of success, and dread of failure. It is her son, Konstantin,

who one day shoots a seagull; it is the novelist Trigorin who will one day write the story of the seagull so casually killed;

but it is Nina, the seagull herself, whose life to come will rewrite the story.

BORN YESTERDAY  by Garson Kanin
directed by Matthew Byron Cassi

April 29- May 22, 2016

In this classic American comedy, an uncouth, corrupt junk dealer, Harry Brock, brings his showgirl mistress Billie Dawn

with him to Washington, D.C. When Billie's ignorance becomes a liability to Brock's business dealings,

he hires a journalist, Paul Verrall, to educate his girlfriend. In the process of learning,

Billie Dawn realizes how corrupt Harry is and begins interfering with his plans to bribe a Congressman.


Buy-Tickets-Button season


Anna-Gangai-in-Master-Class-230x300"An artist enters. And is."

So says Maria Callas in “Master Class,” Terrence McNally’s take on a series of classes that the past-her-glorious-prime opera superstar gave at Juilliard in 1972. And so does  Anna Gangai in Classic Theatre’s season opener, revisiting a role that she first played in an earlier production of the piece at the now-defunct Church Theatre. (Side note: This version uses a different version of the script.)

The piece, directed with precision by Diane Malone (who also directed the Church production), has Callas working with and, in a few cases, terrorizing, three students — played to terrific effect by Amanda Golden, Jacquelyn Matava and Jerry Cordova — and reflecting on some of the big moments of her life and career. In one particularly memorable moment, she recalls “hurling notes like thunderbolts,” a memory that Gangai recounts so vividly that one can almost envision the set and the rest of the cast.
