The Colony Theatre will present the Pulitzer Prize nominee, Old Wicked Songs, written by Jon Marans and directed by Stephanie Vlahos, as its next show of the season. Old Wicked Songs will preview February 1 -3, open on Saturday, February 4 at 8:00 pm and continue through Sunday, March 4.
Stephen is a young, brilliant American pianist who has come to Vienna with the hope of regaining his shattered confidence. His teacher is a lonely, eccentric, elderly professor with a shadowy past. As the glorious music of Robert Schumann floods the professor's studio, the past collides with the present, deep secrets are revealed, and the men slowly discover they have more in common than just the music they love. Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Old Wicked Songs travels an emotional journey that weaves together profound sorrow, boundless joy, and soaring inspiration.
The two-person cast will feature Tavis Danz as Stephen Hoffman and John Towey as Professor Josef Mashkan, and the design team includes Stephen Gifford (Scenic Design), Jared A. Sayeg (Lighting Design), Kate Bergh (Costume Design), and Drew Dalzell (Sound Design). Props design and set dressing is by Colony Theatre resident designers MacAndMe.
Question-and-answer talkbacks will follow the performances on Friday, February 10 and Thursday, February 23, and if you’ve never been to an opening night at the Colony, you should consider going.
