Inside the Opening Night of Travesties on Broadway
Set in 1917 Zurich, Travesties is about a British military official (Hollander) who recalls serving in Zurich while James Joyce and Vladimir Lenin were also there. He imagines a meeting between the two men, which is performed in the style of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.
The Broadway revival features set and costume design by Tim Hatley, lighting design by Neil Austin, sound design and original music by Adam Cork, and movement by Polly Bennett.
