Baz Luhrmann's La Boheme

"What theatergoers get here, from celebrated Australian film and stage director Baz Luhrmann, is an intimately scaled, emotionally attentive, visually choice and musically lucid staging of a great opera about riotous love and bohemian bonhomie. The show's straightforwardness is both the gratifying fulfillment and faint lingering liability of the evening," wrote Steven Winn for the San Francisco Chronicle of October 17, 2002, about a performance at the Curran Theatre.

"Three teams of attractive young principals, their voices 'assisted' by electronic amplification that is masterful and almost undetectable by Broadway standards, alternate in the major roles."

After its opening on October 17, director Baz Luhrmann's "energized, modern take" on Puccini's La Boheme sold out its six-week run at the Curran Theater in San Francisco, selling $300,000 worth of tickets the day its reviews came out. The final three weeks of the run are expected to gross $800,000 a week, meaning the show will turn a profit out of town, a rarity."--from the New York Times of November 1, 2002.
