Failed romance. Censorship. Prison. Black magic. Giant talking cat. It'll be one hell of a party.
||RECOMMENDED ... so many beautiful moments ...
1930’s Moscow. Stalinism reigns and the playwright known as The Master is
desperately fighting theatre critics and government censors to get his script about
Jesus and Pontius Pilate produced. Into this picture steps Professor Woland, a
“specialist in black magic” with an entourage of demons and a talking cat, to set
Moscow on its ear with a party of the damned. Strawdog is excited as (ahem) hell to
have Timeline Theatre associate artist Louis Contey (Awake and Sing!
) bringing this wild masterpiece of Russian Literature to our stage.
