maria severa to be a part of shaw festival’s 2011 season!

September 21, 2010

Artistic Director Jackie Maxwell proudly announced this morning that Jay Turvey and Paul Sportelli’s new musical Maria Severa will be a part of the Shaw Festival’s 2011 50th Anniversary Season. The musical is based on Portugese folklore about the famed singer who pioneered the style of music we now call “fado.”

Jay and Paul started working on the piece four years ago, and after a number of workshops and a performance as a part of the Shaw’s 2009 reading series, it is finally ready for production.

It will be directed by Jackie Maxwell. Casting will be announced soon!
