Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

Winner! 2006 Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival.
In this tender drama about the transportive and unifying power of art, Douglas and Claire, two strangers from very different social backgrounds, meet at a performance of Verdi's Rigoletto. As the story of the opera progresses and the beauty of the music overwhelms them, Douglas and Claire soon become the main characters in their own poignant love story, which, like the story of the opera before them, crescendos to a heartbreaking conclusion. Published in Off-Off Broadway Festival Plays, 31st series.
Libretto was presented in New York City by Algonquin Productions, Tony Sportiello, Artistic Director, in June 2006 as part of the Thirty-First Annual Samuel French Off Off Broadway Original Short Play Festival.
