The Company’s 2018 production of Patience parodied the all-consuming nature of fads — a send-up
of romantic sex symbols and the public’s infatuation with them. Patience drew record audiences and
critical acclaim. The Hyde Park Herald called it “magnificent” and “charming” — a production that was
“faithful to the original while fresh and compelling.” The production team included Director Shane Valenzi; Music
Direct Matthew Sheppard; Associate Director Ross Matsuda; Scenic Designer Vicki Granacki; and
Producer Nancy Levner.
