Master Class

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 3 p.m. Continues through Oct. 4 2015

Inspired by a series of classes real-life opera diva Maria Callas gave at Juilliard in the ’70s, Terrence McNally’s Master Class follows an imagined class as the singer spirals into recollections of triumphs and trials. Callas built her storied career on a voice some considered ugly, with one critic noting, “for all its natural lack of varnish, velvet and richness, this voice could acquire such distinctive colors and timbres as to be unforgettable.” Vanity would be her downfall and after immense weight loss, her frail frame could no longer support her famous voice.

Price: $10-$25
