Beethoven's Promethean Concerto in C Minor WoO
The Man, The Myth, The Music
A Four Movement Music Drama
Based on Ludwig Van Beethoven

The recently created Long Island-based Tomorrows Classics Theatre Company (TCTC) is dedicated to solely producing cutting-edge new works.  Co-Founders, Debi Toni, a singer/songwriter, performer, teacher, and musical director; and award-winning playwright, director, author, entertainer, and psychic, Cindi Sansone-Braff, truly believe that these innovative new plays are destined to become future theater classics.

Their first project, Beethoven's Promethean Concerto in C Minor WoO, written by co-founder, Cindi Sansone-Braff, brings to the south shore suburbs of Long Island the kind of groundbreaking theater that youd only expect to find in London, Vienna, or New York City.

Following Aristotles principles of three unities, this Four Movement music drama takes place on August 6,1826, the fateful day when Beethoven's beloved nephew shot himself in the head. Beethoven, forced to review the soul record of his life, ponders the universal question that has plagued him, Hamlet, and all of humankind since the dawn of time: "To be or not to be?"  Yes, for any soul-searching being, this is always the question.

Your contribution will help us commemorate, on August 5, 2017, the 191st Anniversary Eve of that earth-shattering day.  An Anniversary encore performance will take place on, Sunday, August 6, 2017.  By the way, these synchronistic dates were not picked by human design, but were divinely-timed by the powers that be -- stunning both co-founders!

After the Saturday night World Premiere performance, there will be an informative question-and-answer session.

Why Was This Play Created in the First Place?

Cindi wrote this play after seeing the movie Immortal Beloved.  Although she had been a working psychic/medium for years, she'd never had the experience of having any famous deceased  person channel thorough her, while watching a movie,  All through the movie she kept getting messages from the Other Side telling her things like, They tampered with facts.  This isn't true.  You can look it up for yourself. She soon realized that the messages were coming from Beethoven himself. Yes, she was awestruck, since she knew very little about the man or even about his music, and she had no idea why he would come to her or what he wanted her to do with this information. This was back  1995, and Cindi wasn't computer literate, and she couldn't just go and Google the facts, so she got hold of a bunch of books about Beethoven and fact-checked -- and lo and behold there was a great deal of tampering with the facts concerning Beethoven's life throughout this movie. After reading at least ten books about him, she discovered that Beethoven was greatly concerned that his biographers would not tell the truth about his life.  It was his heartfelt desire that whatever might be written about him and his life, must be written with an absolute adherence to facts and truth, even if these truths might cast a dark shadow upon this or that person or even upon himself. Beethoven just wanted anyone who wrote anything about him to just tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about him, and this is what I have tried to do.  I also had to fill in the dots, as well as connect the dots, to figure out some of the more mysterious aspects of his life. The overwhelming majority of his biographers have been men and they have failed to adequately understand the drama and trauma of his childhood and early life, and how these events came to  influence his music and his actions.   Cindi has tried and succeeded to bring a deep understanding of the heart and soul of this musical genius to the stage.


Our greatest hope is that this scaled-down production can be a vehicle that will generate interest from potential producers, theatres, or other theatre professionals to believe in this show and advocate for it to find a home for this play where it can have a fully-realized production.
