Passion's Giorgio (Michael Cerveris) has a perfect lover before he meets the unattractive Fosca (Judy Kuhn) - a bit of blond perfection called Clara (Rebecca Luker). Stephen Sondheim's and James Lapine's Passion will play at the Kennedy Center through Aug. 23.

Based on Ettore Scola's Italian film "Passion d'Amore," Passion is the tale of obsessive love between Giorgio, a handsome young soldier and Fosca, a sick, ugly woman. The musical had short Broadway run, but won the 1994 Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical.
