Master Class

by Terrence McNally

Performed in the Summer of 2011

Inspired by a series of master classes conducted by the late, great diva, Maria Callas, this sparkling, rich, mercurial play puts la divina back onstage as she coaxes, prods and inspires her “victims” into giving the performance of their lives, while she rivetingly regales us with the secrets – professional and personal – of her own.
