Master Class

Master Class

7pm April 24,25, May 1,2
By Terrence McNally
Maria Callas is teaching a master class in front of an audience: us. She’s glamorous, commanding, larger than life — and drop-dead funny. Inspired by a series of master classes the great diva conducted at Juilliard toward the end of her career, MASTER CLASS puts Maria Callas at center stage again as she coaxes, prods and inspires students — “victims” as she calls them — into giving the performances of their lives while revealing her own. As she slips off into memories, we learn about Callas’ affair with Aristotle Onassis; an abortion she was forced to have; her first elderly husband whom she left; her early days as an ugly duckling; the fierce hatred of her rivals; and the unforgiving press that savaged her at first.

This production is being presented in theotherspace, our 50-seat black box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy.

Produced in part by Hugh & Joy Hatcher and Tim & Kris Lee
