At a remote military outpost in 1863 Italy, a handsome army captain, separated from his beautiful – but married – mistress, is forced to re-evaluate his beliefs about love when he becomes the object of the obsessive, unrelenting passions of Fosca, his Colonel's plain, sickly cousin. Wondrously complex, hauntingly dark and unexpected, this sweeping musical will ignite the most skeptical of hearts.
"Passion" stars TBA Award-winning Heather Orth (Grey Gardens, Chess) as Fosca, TBA nominated Juliana Lustenader (Grey Gardens, Chess, House of Yes) as Clara and John Melis (Broadway by the Bay) as Giorgio.
