Custom Made Theatre Company

Lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine; Directed by Stuart Bousel. Bold, unexpected and thrilling, Passion is one of Stephen Sondheim's most emotional works. Intimate, raw, erotic and dark, it explores universal, yet often unspoken, truths. Passion is set at a remote military outpost in 1863 Italy, where a handsome army captain, separated from his beautiful--but married--mistress, is forced to re-evaluate his beliefs about love when he becomes the object of the obsessive, unrelenting passions of Fosca, his Colonel's plain, sickly cousin.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman has to say about Passion :

This 1994 Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, set in 19th-century Italy, is a love story about a plain and sickly woman and a dashing soldier. When it first opened, the New York Times described it as a beauty and the beast tale—about a woman who “remakes the beauty (the captain) with the unconditional force of her love.” The tale of sex, obsession and, yes, passion is directed for Custom Made by Stuart Bousel.
