Exclusive Footage of PASSION at Signature Theatre
Set in 1860s Italy, this gorgeous musical ignites a fiery love triangle when a handsome army captain is transferred to a remote military outpost and into the blinding infatuation of Fosca, the ailing cousin of his superior. Fosca’s fervent longing draws him in as it threatens to upend his career in an exhilarating tangle of obsession, desire, madness, and above all, passion.

Starring Natascia Diaz (West Side Story), Claybourne Elder (Sunday in the Park with George) and Steffanie Leigh (Broadway’s War Paint, Mary Poppins), Stephen Sondheim’s lush and romantic Tony Award®-winning Best Musical will thrill audiences in a radiant new staging by Associate Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner (West Side Story, Sunday in the Park with George, Crazy for You).


Funny Girl (Steven Brinberg Is Simply Barbra)
