Reno, NV.   Brüka Theatre’s 26th Season: A Classic Revolution comes to a show-stopping close with a magical, musical‐comedy: Victor/Victoria. The setting is Paris, 1934 for this marvelous musical fable about mistaken identity, sexual roleplaying, love, innocence and sight gags. In August 1998 A US National tour started in Reno, Nevada, starring Toni Tennille.

THE STORY:  When refined British soprano Victoria Grant finds herself down on her luck in Paris, she discovers to her dismay that producers and nightclub owners are looking for a sound that is much less “legitimate” than hers. On the brink of starvation, she is rescued by Toddy, a warm, generous, and flamboyant nightclub singer, who gets a brilliant idea: dress Victoria as a man, and pass her off as a female impersonator, where she will delight the whole of Gay Paree with her eerie gender‐bending and astonishing vocal range.

All Brüka mainstage evening shows now begin at a new time: 7:30 PM. Matinees begin at 2:00 PM. Doors open ½ before curtain time.  Brüka was named “Best Local Theatre Company” by The Reno News & Review for the 21st year in a row.

BRÜKA THEATRE 26TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON – A CLASSIC REVOLUTION
THE CRUCIBLE

An Epic Tale Of Truth, Redemption And The Absolute

Written by Arthur Miller Directed by Holly Natwora

Reno, NV.   Brüka Theatre’s 26th Season: A Classic Revolution continues with The Crucible. In a small American town, a group of young girls are found dancing in the woods, and mysteriously fall ill. When no earthly cause can be determined, the citizens suspect that some more sinister force may be at hand. As long‐held grudges turn to violent disputes, humiliating secrets are exposed, the line between truth and pretense becomes increasingly blurred, and the citizens’ dogged determination to root out evil turns more deadly than the Devil himself. Everyone is suspect and no one is safe. The Crucible, Arthur Miller’s remarkable 1953 play, remains as relevant as ever and carries with it a stern warning about what happens when we lose our humanity and sell our souls to save ourselves.

All Brüka mainstage evening shows now begin at a new time: 7:30 PM. Matinees begin at 2:00 PM. Doors open ½ before curtain time.  Brüka was named “Best Local Theatre Company” by The Reno News & Review for the 21st year in a row.  Visit our Brüka Bazaar downstairs for gifts and unique items.
