This April, Broken Glass presents INFERNO, an all-new adaptation of Dante's Inferno. Our original production, written and directed by Artistic Director Kate Moran, sets the scene in what appears to be modern-day New York City. As Dante, a foreigner, makes his way across a bizarro urban landscape with the help of his hipster guide Virgil, it is slowly revealed that not everything is as it seems. Over the course of 24 hours, Dante and Virgil encounter dozens of the peculiar creatures that populate this nightmarish city and eventually come face to face with Lucifer herself.
INFERNO will be very rewarding for fans of the classic poem on which the play is based. Whole scenes and characters are transplanted directly to the stage with a unique, very American twist. Those unfamiliar with The Divine Comedy will find a play that, like Dante's original, is a political satire that calls out specific, recognizable individuals and assigns them a grotesque punishment in their own circle of hell.
Starring: Robbie Baum, Danielle Devine, Sarah Knittel, Whit Leyenberger, Kamelle Mills, Clint Okayama, Nicole Roberts, Christina Stone, Terence Stone and Marchelle Thurman.
Caution: INFERNO is rated PG-13 and not for children.
