A tyrant rules over the city of Florence. A nobleman finds lifeblood in the idea of assassination. In the journey from ideation to action, the killer loses sight of himself. In this queer adaptation of a French classic, one body takes on many. Who is the real Renzo, and how many masks must one don and discard in order to act? Director: Roxane Revon. Translator: Edmund Burke Thompson. Lighting Design: Krista Smith. Sound Design: Michael Costagliola. Stage Manager: Andrew Carr. Graphic Design: Luke Madden.
