Noël Coward writes “Vida de Artistas” (Artists’ Life) to fulfill a pact made 11 years earlier between himself and his two friends, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.
“The Lunts,” as they were known, became the most celebrated theater couple in America, but by 1921, when Coward visited them in New York, they were beginning to live in cheap housing for struggling actors.
Coward was also still relatively unknown, but shared with Lunt and Fontanne a hunger for fame and success.
The production premiered on Broadway in 1933 and then in England, with immediate critical and commercial success, despite its amoral characters and proclaimed bisexuality.
Directed by Jorge Silva Melo, “Vida de Artistas” features Nuno Pardal, Rita Brütt, Pedro Caeiro, Américo Silva, Antónia Terrinha, Tiago Matias, Raquel Montenegro, Ana Amaral, Pedro Cruzeiro, and Jefferson Oliveira.
This life starts at 9:30pm.
