THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY by Oscar Wilde (adapted by Merlin Holland and John O'Connor)

Premiere on 15 February, 2018 

Final Performance on 14 April, 2018 


Based on Oscar Wilde’s famous novel of 1891, the play is part melodrama and part comedy of manners. It tells the story of Dorian Gray, a beautiful young man who falls in love with a portrait of himself. He naively makes a pact with the Devil, whereby he will keep his youthful appearance while the picture grows old. Under the in uence of a charming new friend, Dorian dedicates himself to a life of pleasure in London’s salons and bordellos. As he pursues a life of sensuality and moral corruption, he remains forever young in appearance. But to his surprise and horror, the beautiful young man in the portrait turns into an aging, grotesque image of himself. Wilde’s novel shocked the Victorian readers of his time. In spite of the public outrage, however, it soon became a bestseller due to its witty language and amusing characters.

How does one deal with romantic love and marriage in today’s world? This is the question posed by this delightful revue-like musical as it moves from couples on their rst disastrous date, through courtship, the ups and downs of marriage and raising children, then divorce and old age. Serious stuff is always the basis of the best comedy, and this fast paced show is no exception. It employs various musical styles from the classic ballad to country- western, Latino, pop and rock. The show’s magical balance of comic and tender moments, timeless content, hilarious dialogue and clever lyrics, made it the second longest running off- Broadway musical in history with over 5000 performances. It was also nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical.
