From Amy Freed -- award-winning author of "The Beard of Avon", "Safe in Hell" and Pulitzer Prize finalist "Freedomland" -- comes "The Monster Builder", a satirical play about a thoroughly egotistical architect. Rita and Dieter are thrilled to meet Gregor, the most celebrated architect in the world -- the man whose buildings rise from the earth like some sort of twisted megaliths. Why, then, has Gregor chosen to take on the remodel of a decaying boathouse that was meant to be a project of their own undertaking? They may be ready for a confrontation, but nothing could prepare Rita and Dieter for the heart-stopping truth they're soon to learn about their idol. Don't miss this outrageous satire on the Segerstrom Stage of Costa Mesa's South Coast Repertory. [less-]

One of the most frequently performed operas of all time, Mozart's hilarious "The Marriage of Figaro" was based on a play so scandalous it was banned in Vienna. Luckily, Mozart had the pull to get his opera version approved and music history was made. The opera went on to achieve fantastic success and continues to delight audiences to this day. Figaro, who once was "The Barber of Seville," is now valet to Count Almaviva, who has grown from a young romantic into a shameless skirtchaser. His latest target is Figaro's bride-to-be, the lovely Susanna. As Figaro tries to keep the count away until the wedding, Susanna and the Countess have their own plot to embarrass and expose the scheming count. Identities are concealed, manners upended, plots foiled ... all to the glorious music of Mozart's masterpiece.
