If you liked Into the Woods or Sunday In The Park With George, you’ll no doubt enjoy Passion.

Life Like Company is presenting a new production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s critically acclaimed, Tony Award winning musical Passion. It will be playing for four nights only at The Playhouse, Arts Centre Melbourne from 5-8 November, 2014.

The original Broadway production of Passion received ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. It is set in 1863 at a remote military outpost in Italy. Handsome army captain Giorgio is separated from his beautiful (but married) mistress Clara, and must re-evaluate his beliefs about love when Fosca, his Colonel’s plain and sickly cousin, falls in love with him.

Life Like Company‘s Melbourne production will feature names like Kane Alexander, Silvie Paladino, Theresa Borg and John O’May, and be directed by Neil Gooding.

Tickets are on sale from Tuesday 8 July from Arts Centre Melbourne Box Office (03) 9281 8000 or via
