“Master Class” Terrence McNally's Tony award-winning play about opera diva Maria Callas
Gigi Bermingham will star as internationally renowned opera diva Maria Callas when International City Theatre (ICT) presents Terrence McNally’s Tony Award-winning Master Class.
“As a performing artist, I identify with Maria’s grandiosity as well as her humiliation,”
“Callas experienced such passionate dedication to her art on such a grand emotional scale,” agrees director Todd Nielsen. “Master Class is so special because McNally has fused brilliantly poetic dialogue and wonderful humor with great music from classic operas.”
Master Class runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays @ 8 pm and Sundays @ 2 pm, March 22 through April 14. Two preview performances take place on Wednesday, March 20 and Thursday, March 21 @ 8 pm. Tickets are $38 on Thursdays and $45 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, except opening night which is $50 and includes a reception with the actors following the performance. Preview tickets are $29. International City Theatre is located in the Long Beach Performing Arts Center at 300 E. Ocean Boulevard in Long Beach, CA 90802.
