TIFT Presents "Candide"

Candide takes the audience on a round-the-world romp of idealistic optimism as it clashes with a series of absurdly unfortunate events. Throughout the course of the story, however, this hopefulness is constantly called into question as Candide is exiled, forced into the Bulgarian army, caught up in the Spanish Inquisition, cheated out of a fabulous fortune, shipwrecked on a remote island, and generally torn apart from his love. Featuring a splendid score by the unparalleled Leonard Bernstein and a charming book by Hugh Wheeler, Candide is a witty and wacky satire of a musical. It will be given an intimate production with only five cast members, re-imagined by Director Richard Ouzounian in celebration of Bernstein’s 100th Anniversary.
