Amadeus at North Coast Repertory Theatre

“Amadeus” is one of the best (if not most historically accurate) musicals ever written, and North Coast Rep does it proud. Don’t miss this show.

M. Butterfly

Director Desdemona Chiang has found an excellent cast to tell this unusual story. Lucas Verbrugghe brilliantly plays unhappily married diplomat René Gallimard, who seems to spend more time drinking and ogling women with lusty old college friend Marc (Aaron Blakely) than at home with wife Agnes (Nike Doukas).

Daniel's Husband

I’d call “Daniel’s Husband” a Greek tragedy if it weren’t so clever, charming and funny on the way to its sadness. Playwright Michael McKeever deftly melds humor and tragedy, and the superb cast portrays the five characters so engagingly that we’re caught caring entirely too much when the problem arises.
