Candide- November 23rd-December 2nd, 2017

“A Satirical Musical”

Music by Leonard Bernstein

Book by Huge Wheeler adapted from Voltaire

Lyrics by Richard Wilbur, John Latouche and Stephen Sondheim

Directed by Richard Ouzounian

Candide takes the audience in a round-the-world romp of idealistic optimism as it clashes with a series of absurdly unfortunate events. Throughout the course of the story, however, this hopefulness is constantly called into question as Candide is exiled, forced into the Bulgarian army, caught up in the Spanish inquisition, cheated out of a fabulous fortune, shipwrecked to a remote island, and generally torn apart from his love. Featuring a splendid score by the unparalleled Leonard Bernstein and a charming book by Hugh Wheeler, Candide is a witty and wacky satire of a musical.
