Master and Margarita: A New Musical Adaptation Thursday October 28 2021 at 8:00 PM EDT
Thursday October 28 2021
A Crow’s Theatre commission and public workshop presentation, MASTER AND MARGARITA is a modern musical adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov’s famously banned novel The Master and Margarita. For three special nights in October, Crow’s Theatre will invite audiences to experience a salon style work-in-progress performance in which the devil pays a visit to 1930s Moscow.
The devil and his crew have arrived to upend the Soviet bureaucracy under Stalin. The Master, author of an unpublished novel about Jesus and Pontius Pilate, languishes in a psychiatric hospital. Margarita, the Master’s devoted lover, agrees to sell her soul to the devil to rescue him from his desperate fate. MASTER AND MARGARITA is an evocation of the human instinct to fight for love, to fight for connection, and to fight for freedom, even in the face of hate, censorship, and subjugation.
The three multi-talented and accomplished co-creators of MASTER AND MARGARITA are Mikaela Davies (The Changeling / Stratford Festival, Miss Bennett / The Citadel); Hailey Gillis (Ghost Quartet / Crow’s Theatre, Onegin / The Musical Stage Company); and Polly Phokeev (Seams / Summerworks Festival, How We Are / site-specific work staged in private bedrooms).

At Crow’s Theatre, our 2021.22 season aims to be surprising, unpredictable, uplifting, and urgent. While we hope to avoid ‘spoilers’ when promoting our productions, we understand that there is subject nature which may cause distress or trigger challenging emotions for some of our audience members.
Some of our shows deal with war and its associated violence, colonization, adult language, sexual violence, gun violence, and suicide.
