Gigi:
a play by Anita Loos
from the novella by Colette

 

January 9th - February 14th, 2015

 

Set in Paris at the turn of the 20th century, legendary storyteller Anita Loos dramatizes Collette's timeless tale of love and marriage...and commerce.

 

Seven years before MGM presented the classic movie musical version of the same story, this comedic romance of a rich but weary bon vivant and an innocent would-be courtesan launched the career of Audrey Hepburn.

And the Storm Theatre serves up a strong, fast-paced production, one that anyone interested in politics will likely appreciate."

Our God's Brother
by Karol Wojtyła 
translated by Bolesław Taborski

The Storm Theatre and Blackfriars Repertory Theatre present

April 4 - May 3, 2014

 

An aristocrat turned revolutionary escapes from the Czarist authorities and finds his calling as a critically acclaimed painter. But he cannot ignore what everyone around him fails to see. He yearns to reach a higher calling only to be soundly rejected. Rebellion is brewing, but his far greater challenge is the struggle within himself.

 

Karol Wojtyła was a young seminarian in Poland who, at 21, during WWII, became a co-founder of the underground Rhapsodic Theatre. His play, The Jeweler's Shop was made into a film with Burt Lancaster in 1989. In 1978, Wojtyła was elected Pope John Paul II and is due to be canonized this April 27th.

Antigone
by Jean Anouilh
adapted by Louis Galantière

The Storm Theatre and Blackfriars Repertory Theatre present:

Jan. 10 - Feb. 15, 2014

 

A religious rite denied for the "good of the State" prompts a spirited young woman to an act of defiance. This act and its consequences are the core of Jean Anouilh's brilliant modern retelling of Sophocles' Ancient Greek tragedy ANTIGONE. This classic, translated by Louis Galantière , explores the conflicts between the individual vs. the state, idealism vs. pragmatism, but ultimately its greatness lies in its exploration of the human soul and its greatest desires. Now, as then, we live in a world ruled by "pragmatic" decisions that oppose the yearnings of the human heart, as such, The Storm Theatre and Blackfriars Repertory Theatre believes this is a perfect time to revive this timeless masterpiece.

The Play's The Thing

by Ferenc Molnar

adapted by P.G. Wodehouse

September 20th - October 26th, 2013

 

In a castle on the Italian Riviera, illicit romantic protestations are heard through its walls leaving a sensitive young composer facing devastation and heartbreak, and the celebrated writing team of Mansky and Turai facing humiliation and financial ruin. Only Sandor Turai remains calm and cool in finding a solution when he realizes "the play's the thing..."

 

NY TIMES critic Vincent Canby once stated "...when it's performed by the right company, it can be as much dreamy fun as a fireworks show: a gorgeous if ephemeral display of the way in which civilized behavior can briefly triumph over life's usual chaos"

 

The Storm Theatre pledges to be that "right" company and is very proud to present this 1926 comedy classic as part of our celebration of Ferenc Molnár's great legacy to world theatre.

Le Cid

a play by Pierre Corneille
translated by Richard Wilbur

January 4th - February 9th, 2013

 

In Le Cid, the 17th century classic, Don Rodrique transforms himself from young lover to great warrior, through his steadfast devotion to honor above all else. His actions both repel and attract his beloved Chimene who responds in-kind with a vow to destroy what she loves most.

 

What ensues is one of history's strangest and most compelling love stories as well as one of the greatest dramatic works about the difficulty in becoming who you truly are.

Marius

by Marcel Pagnol
translated by Zack Rogow

September 7th - October 13th, 2012

 

The Storm Theatre is proud to present the New York Premiere of MARIUS by Marcel Pagnol, translated from the French and adapted by Zack Rogow!

 

Eighteen year old Fanny, the most beautiful girl in Marseille, loves the handsome twenty-two year-old Marius who daydreams away while working at his father's Bar de la Marine. He secretly returns Fanny's ardour, but resists her advances, yearning to go Elsewhere, to a life at sea full of adventure. However, fifty year-old Panisse, a recent widower and wealthy sailmaker, has proposed to the young Fanny. She wants Marius, but if Marius does not want her, she will give up romance and marry for security. With Panisse she'd have a maid and 100,000 francs! The ball is in Marius's court...

 

What ensues is one of the great romances of the past century bursting with passion, warmth, humor, all the yearning and passion of youth and the wisdom of age. 

 

Marcel Pagnol was one of the leading French dramatists of the last 100 years. Of the many plays he wrote, MARIUS is considered his masterpiece. The play is the cornerstone of Pagnol's Marseille trilogy. MARIUS has been adapted as a movie several times, most recently by the great French actor Daniel Auteuil, in a soon-to-be-released remake.

The London Merchant

or the History of George Barnwell

by George Lillo

January 6th  - January 28th, 2012

 

First performed in 1731, George Lillo's THE LONDON MERCHANT tells the story of a young apprentice led astray by a courtesan. 

 

It marked an exceptional departure for Lillo and created a new genre of theatre which concentrated on the struggles of the working classes. Prior to this, the theatre of the period had predominantly focused on stories relating to the upper classes, biblical or classical themes. 

 

The new ‘bourgeois drama’ became popular across Europe, and gave Lillo a notable place in dramatic history.

NOON DIVIDE
by Paul Claudel

October 29th - November 20th, 2010

 

On a ship bound for Hong Kong, a lonely civil servant meets a beautiful vivacious married woman. Seduction and an ensuing torrid affair lead to surprising consequences. 

 

What at first seems a classic example of "Amor Fou" ( a French term literally translated as "crazy love"), unfolds in a very unexpected way. NOON DIVIDE was a play Claudel felt he had "written in his own blood". Using his own adulterous affair with Rosalie Vetch as his inspiration, Claudel explores human sexual passion, and its role within the architecture of Salvation. 

 

This apparent tragedy of doomed love eventually reveals itself as a Divine comedy, much along the lines of his vast epic THE SATIN SLIPPER (which was also inspired by the same events in Claudel's life). 

 

Produced by the Storm Theatre, in association with

Blackfriars Repertory Theatre.
