Brocade – A World Premiere Comedy Set in 17th C. Venice

January 30, 2020 @ 8:00 PM - February 16, 2020 @ 8:00 PM


An intriguing world premiere comedy set in 17th Century Venice written by Robert E. DiNardo. Shela Xoregos directs a cast of six, including Ethelyn Friend*, Sarah Kebede-Fiedler, Carla Lewis*, Bennett Saltzman, Gene Santarelli*, and Jacob Silburn with violin excerpts performed by Laura Zawarski. Original music has been composed by Barbara Rottman.

1615. Venice. A cosmopolitan city populated by people from many nations and predilections. Entwined in strange ways are the intriguing lives of a once notorious woman who now masquerades as a nun, a couturier who wears his own gowns, his brainy African lover, a mysterious Don Juan, a violin-playing novice and a 60-year-old virgin dressmaker. An unusual comedy with captivating twists, Brocade will amuse and surprise.

Tickets are $18. Students/Seniors are $15. Visit TheaterForTheNewCity.net or BrownPaperTickets.com.

Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. A talkback will be held after the 3:00 p.m. performance on Sunday, February 9th with the playwright, violinist and cast.

The runtime is approximately two hours, plus one 15-minute intermission.
