A Picture of Dorian Gray
Based on the Novella by Oscar Wilde
Adapted and Directed by Michael Michetti
February 16 - April 02, 2006

"Perverted."  "Unmanly, sickening and vicious."  Criics were shocked in 1891, and Wilde's infamous tale still has the power to provoke.  This hot new adaptation rips the fig leaf off the book's remarkably contemporary themes of hedonism and the insatiable pursuit of pleasure while strictly adhering to the text of Wilde's scandalous novella.

“Fresh and relevant…fascinating.”   -Core Media

“'Picture’ is a masterpiece.  Clever staging, interesting costumes and lighting, provocative music, effective dance sequences and fine acting make Boston Court’s ‘A Picture of Dorian Gray’ a thoroughly satisfying evening of theater.”   -Core Media Weeklies

“Classical, also, is Michetti's beautifully composed world premiere staging at the Boston Court, which incorporates virtuosic design elements, most notably Michetti's arresting scenic design, to provide an impressionistic glimpse of Victorian England at its most sumptuous and squalid. Steven Young's evocative lighting, Amanda Seymour's lovely costumes and Robert Oriol's eerie sound are all integral to the period ambience, while choreographer John Pennington's dance sequences act as striking visual metaphors to the main action.”   -LA Times

“The wit is coruscating and the conversation brilliant…with clever staging, striking sets and handsome costumes.”   -The Pink Sheet

“Michetti has brought Dorian to breathtaking life over 100 years later and Wilde himself would surely be thrilled by what is being accomplished here.”   -ReviewPlays.com and Entertainment Today

“Compelling and gripping…[this] haunting, seductive portrayal is intelligent and graceful.”   -Frontiers Magazine

“A revelation…Michetti has skillfully created a thoughtful, dark, unsettling morality tale, and his actors give nuanced performances, making this production worth seeing.”   -Pasadena Weekly and BlogCritic.org

“It is engrossing.”   -Random Lengths News

“'Dorian’ proves to be stunning theatre…a beautiful thing.”   -Pasadena Star News/San Gabriel Valley Tribune/Whittier Daily News

“An absorbing and literate staging.  Though Michetti has assembled a splendid ensemble, the driving force of this lovely production is the aesthetic beauty emanating from the design elements and John Pennington’s exciting dance sequences…alluring.”   -Backstage West

Elegant and penetrating”   -City Beat

Stunning.”   -LA Weekly
