Quantum’s Karla Boos takes the stage as Madame Ranevskaya in Libby Appel’s celebrated version of Chekhov’s greatest play. Joining Karla in the cast are long-time collaborator Peter Duschenes (Richard II; The Merchant of Venice) and in a Pittsburgh first, the entire theatrical Lehane/Klatscher family. Directed by Katie Brook, the outdoor summer location is fabulous OneValley, near Hazelwood Green, a slick co-working space that references its past along the Mon.
Quantum, in collaboration with Chatham Baroque, will produce Idaspe, Oct. 7-15 at the Byham Theater, thanks to support from the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.
Created by Claire van Kampen and Chatham Baroque from Riccardo Broschi’s 1730 manuscript, Idaspe is a category-defying mix of cutting edge theatre and glorious Baroque music. Vivica Genaux and John Holiday lead a cast and team of world-class talents, including Grammy and Tony Award-winning artists.
