“A Satirical Musical”
Candide takes the audience on 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 on 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 an operetta.
Performance times are Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30pm, Friday and Saturday at 8pm and a Saturday matinee at 2pm
