Maria Callas, one of the most famous opera divas of all time, is teaching a master class in front of an audience,you. Glamorous, commanding, larger than life, caustic, and surprisingly drop-dead funny, Maria is alternately dismayed and impressed by the three students who bravely enter the music studio at Juilliard, hoping for a gram of inspiration from the famed soprano. Maria frequently retreats into recollections of her own life and triumphs at La Scala with searing monologues about the unforgiving press, her affair with Aristotle Onassis, and her sacrifice taken in the name of art. With incidental music by Verde, Puccini and Bellini, author Terence McNally created a Drama-Desk and Tony-Award winning script “MASTER CLASS is Terrence McNally’s total triumph . . . MASTER CLASS is mesmerizing theater.”

To close our season, we present an irrefutable classic of the American theatre. Our Town transports us to Grover’s Corners, a place of secret wishes and disappointments, loves and losses–where the people we encounter on stage are shockingly like the friends and acquaintances in our own lives. Emily and George grow up together in their small New England town and fall in love in a surprisingly complicated way. Their lives provide the lens through which the story is told, that focuses on a village but encompasses the eternal, finding the world in a grain of sand. Our Town won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1938, and became most well-known for reminding the audience of how precious daily life is. “Thornton Wilder’s masterpiece…An immortal tale of small town morality and…a classic of soft spoken theater.” — The New York Times
