WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Following recent political clashes over immigration and border control, the hit production of ¡Figaro! (90210) returns to the New York stage with its unique mix of uproarious comedy and biting social commentary for a strictly limited engagement. This adaptation of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro blends the original score with a new English (and Spanglish) libretto by Vid Guerrerio and recasts the title character and his fiancée as undocumented workers in a mansion of a Beverly Hills real estate mogul and his actress wife.
Directed by Melissa Crespo, ¡Figaro! (90210) gives Mozart a contemporary kick with this amped-up, pared-down musical that infuses the timeless comedy of the original with an especially timely political relevance.
