AMADEUS @ The Maverick Theater

PC: Jeremy Krasovic

Taken from the press release:

Fullerton, Calif.— The Maverick Theater begins its 2024 season with Peter Shaffer’s “Amadeus”, directed by Brian Newell. “Amadeus” is a gripping drama and a wonderful celebration of the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

When your hard-earned fame has been surpassed by a brilliantly gifted, potty-mouthed golden boy, what else can you do but smile to his face while secretly plotting his downfall? “Amadeus”, winner of seven Tony Awards ‑ including Best Play ‑ and the Academy Award® for Best Picture, depicts the flamboyant genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as seen through the eyes of his desperately jealous contemporary, composer Antonio Salieri.

The story unveils through the narration of an Old Antonio Salieri flashing back to 1781 when he was the court composer to Emperor Joseph II. When Mozart arrives, Salieri is horrified to discover that the godlike musical gifts he desires for himself have been bestowed on a bawdy, impish jokester. Mad with envy, Salieri plots to destroy Mozart by any means. Perhaps, even murder.

“Amadeus” opens February 16th and runs through March 23rd. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sundays at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $30 general, $15 for students with a current I.D. Tickets may be purchased online at www.mavericktheater.com or by calling 714-526-7070. The Maverick Theater is located at 110 E. Walnut, Fullerton, CA 92832, across from the Amtrak station in historic Downtown Fullerton.
