Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
He is a handsome soldier; she is homely and ailing. The turbulent relationship between Giorgio and Fosca may seem impossible, but it proves to be all-consuming in this 1994 Tony winner for Best Musical. This luminous show rhapsodizes on the theme of love, but also plumbs its darker side in a haunting tale of obsession and possession.
