With the glorious music of Mozart as a backdrop, Peter Shaffer’s AMADEUS assures North Coast Repertory Theatre of a grand start to Season 38. The Tony winner for Best Play weaves the fascinating tale of composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. Told in a series of flashbacks laced with humor, intrigue and personal insight, AMADEUS examines two men – one consumed with jealousy; the other, blissfully unaware of his extraordinary gifts. Deemed “terrifically entertaining and highly theatrical” by The New York Times, this audience favorite deftly explores musical genius by a master playwright. Tickets are already going quickly, so order now.

Richard Baird directs Tony Amendola,* Rafael Goldstein,* Kathryn Tkel,* Louis Lotorto,* Nick Kennedy, Andrew Oswald,* Andrew Barnicle,* Alice Sherman,* Christopher M. Williams,* and Leigh Ellen Akin in AMADEUS. The design team includes Marty Burnett (Scenic Design), Matthew Novotny (Lighting), Elisa Benzoni (Costumes), Philip Korth (Props) and Peter Herman (Hair and Wig Design). Aaron Rumley* is the Stage Manager.

"This sign of an excellent ensemble is also a sign of excellent direction, and Mr. Baird deserves high marks for staging an intimate production where pageantry is eschewed in favor of emotional engagement. The climatic scene where Salieri and Mozart get “down and dirty” is worth the price of admission alone... It is clear that Artistic Director David Ellenstein and his colleagues wanted to begin the new season with a bang – and they have. "

"North Coast Rep’s current production, “Amadeus” now on stage through Oct. 6th, is in excellent shape right out of the chute. It’s near perfect. Richard Baird’s direction is exquisite and flawless. Tony Amendola’s Salieri is mesmerizing. Rafael Goldstein’s mercurial Mozart is brilliant and Elisa Benzoni’s costumes are out of this world. There’s nothing shabby about the rest of the cast or production either. It’s a must see show."
