The BoHo Theatre Ensemble has just opened it blistering production of the classic Kander and Ebb musical "Kiss of the Spider Woman," running through June 30 at Theater Wit. But it has wasted no time in simultaneously announcing plans for its upcoming 10th anniversary season.
The 2013-2014 lineup of four show corresponds to four essential "pillars" of existence as follows:
± The Pillar of Freedom (by way of Ira Levin's 'Veronica's Room," running Sept. 13-Oct. 13): This melodrama, by the author of "Rosemary's Baby," deals with an elderly couple who invite a young girl and her date, who they spotted at a restaurant, to visit the bedroom of a dead girl, Veronica. Before long, the pair is trapped in an unexpected situation.
± The Pillar of Truth (by way of Peter Shaffer's "Amadeus," running Feb. 14-March 16, 2014): In this contemporary classic, the jealous composer, Salieri, goes note for note against the young genius, Mozart.
± The Pillar of Beauty (by way of the song cycle/revue by Adam Guettel, "Myths & Hymns," running June 13 - July 13, 2014) : Guettel ("The Light in the Piazza") looks at the relationship of humans to gods, both past and present, with songs ranging from electronic jazz and piano ballad to gospel and musical theater.
± The Pillar of Love ("Parade," the musical with a book by Alfred Uhry and a score by Jason Robert Brown, running Sept. 12 - October 12, 2014): The story of the 1913 trial of Jewish factory manager Leo Frank, who was accused and convicted of raping and murdering a 13-year-old employee, Mary Phagan.
