From the duo who created last year's award-winning hit Seattle Vice comes a new cabaret about love, classical music, art nouveau, green fairies and absinthe. Bohemia by Mark Siano and Opal Peachey is a new musical set in 1890s Prague that combines the music of Dvorak and Chopin, with art by Alphonse Mucha. Historic artists like Sarah Bernhardt and George Sand interweave with beautiful green fairies, aerial numbers, dance, burlesque, classical piano battles, comedy and original songs. Famous Czech composer Antonin Dvorak has hit a wall and prior to composing his magnum opus he looks to the bottom of a bottle of absinthe for inspiration. In this macabre and mystical dream cabaret, Dvorak is visited by the ghost of late composer Frederick Chopin. Chopin and many other famous Bohemians guide Dvorak as they search for the true source of inspiration and grasp at artistic immortality. Bohemia is coming to The Triple Door in Seattle.

Romance novels have given young (and wealthy!) Lydia Languish some ridiculous notions, and she insists on marrying a poor man for the sake of true love. Hoping to woo the young woman, Captain Jack Absolute pretends to be a poor army officer. Aiding and thwarting Jack's pursuit are a collection of comic characters including his crusty and cranky father, Sir Anthony, Lydia's meddling and misspoken aunt, Mrs. Malaprop, and a pair of adversaries: the jovial Bob Acres and the salty Sir Lucius O'Trigger. Will romance spark in the midst of hilarious circumstances and mistaken identities? One of the funniest jewels of the late 18th Century, Sheridan's The Rivals paved the way for fellow Irish writers Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw. This landmark play helped revive English stage comedy with its unconventional wit, keenly drawn characters, and heartfelt emotion.
