"The Master and Margarita" to be Performed in W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts
Le Moyne's 2014 spring production -- "The Master and Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov -- will be performed on March 28 and 29 and April 3, 4 and 5 at 8 p.m. in the W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts. There will also be a matinee on Saturday, March 5 at 2 p.m. The play has been adapted for the theater by Matt Chiorini, Jessica Gherardi and Natasia White.
Dear to the hearts of East Europeans and Russians, this novel of magic and mystery was a suppressed cult novel during Stalinist days, expressing forbidden truths with wild spirit, humanity and humor. The devil, his acrobatic cat and other colorful cronies come to Stalin's Moscow to wreak hilarious surreal havoc on the lives of the writers, critics and bureaucrats who have become cynical and complacent. Irreverently jumping back and forth through the bounds of time, geography and reality, this highly theatrical story, in its world-premiere new adaptation for the stage, is sure to delight and dizzy its audience.
Tickets are $15 for the general public, $10 for seniors, $5 for students and the Le Moyne community. For more information and to purchase tickets call 315-445-4200 or go to www.lemoyne.edu/vpa.
