Highlights From Stephen Sondheim's Passion Off-Broadway

Classic Stage Company presents a freshly conceived staging of Passion, the 1994 Tony-winning musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine. Based on the 19th-century Italian novel "Fosca" (and a subsequent film), Passion tells the story of army captain Giorgio (Ryan Silverman) separated from his beloved Clara (Melissa Errico) by the call of duty. When Giorgio meets Fosca (Judy Kuhn), the ill cousin of his commanding officer, he begins to grow fascinated by her, coming to realize no one has ever loved him as deeply. John Doyle directs the production, using an all-male cast except for Kuhn and Errico. Musical direction is by Rob Berman. Read more about the production.
