Bromius Beaujolais may look like a wine industry executive, but he's actually the god Bacchus in David Rosenthal's take on The Bacchae, completing its BareBones debut at the Lark Studio Jan. 21. Giovanni Sardelli directs the comedy. A talk-back with the author follows the Jan. 21 final performance.
When Beaujolais enters their lives, a bourgeoise couple finds their routine ripped apart, forcing them to reasses their existance. Bromius Beaujolais was read in the 2001 Playwrights Week at the Lark.
Jeffrey Binder, Nadia Bowers, Matthew Conlon, Anney Giobe, Mariss Matrone, Sean Runnette and Jennifer Dorr White star.
