“The Providence Players of Fairfax’s production of Amadeus is a glorious mixture of drama and comedy and music that is truly transcendent. This production was skillfully directed by Julie Janson [and] Music Director Kyle Keene does a superb job as he blends the music of Mozart into just the right places to provide a wonderful effect of time and place. The performances in Amadeus are exceptional. The ultra-talented David Whitehead as Salieri takes on a challenging role with intelligence and intensity…[his] performance is layered and nuanced. As Mozart, Mike Rudden is brilliant as an innocent genius who simply cannot cope. The characters known as Venticelli 1 (Bobby Welsh) and Venticelli 2 (Debora Crabbe) are truly excellent as sort of “narrators” to fill in the blanks and keep the story moving. Katherina Cavalieri…portrayed by the incomparable Christina Massimei is an opera singer…She has a rich soprano voice that is nothing short of stunning. …Please get your tickets for this profound and enjoyable experience. It is not to be missed!”

There is a tremendous amount of fine community theater on stage in the DC/MD/VA region at any given time. But, every once in a while, there is a convergence of a superior play, a passionate director and just the right cast and production team that results in a truly special production. Such is the case with the Providence Players’ production of Amadeus. Director Julie Janson, her cast, and the production team have brought Peter Shaffer’s award winning script to life in a stunningly beautiful and inventive way. Opening weekend audiences were brought to their feet each performance, moved by the stage work of David Whitehead as Salieri, Mike Rudden as Mozart, Julia Buhagiar as Constanze and the rest of the fine cast. Throughout the production, The James Lee Community Center Theater swells with the music of Mozart and the outstanding voice of Christina Massimei as Katherina Cavalieri. The production moves seamlessly through time on a gorgeously rich set designed and decorated by Patrick and Ingrid David. The play itself is a masterpiece and the production is inspired and should not be missed. On stage for 6 more more performances. Tickets are selling quickly. Be sure to get yours online today.
