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.
Category-defying Idaspe mixes cutting-edge theatre with glorious Baroque music at the Byham Theater, enabled by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. Acclaimed London artist Claire van Kampen (National Theatre) leads singers of great acclaim including Vivica Genaux (Metropolitan Opera), John Holiday (The Voice), Karim Sulayman (2019 Grammy for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album) and designers with Tony Awards to their credit.
California theatre director Jennifer Chang debuts as a writer with her edgy and completely contemporary take on the Faust story, featuring a character who looks and sounds suspiciously like Snoop Dogg. Pittsburgh’s Kyle Haden directs with chief collaborator Jason Thompson, designing an environment that will immerse the audience in a participatory experience (think TAMARA 2024!)
