WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Henrik Ibsen's' The Master Builder was written in 1892 and is regarded as one of the Norwegian playwright's most revealing and significant works. This new BAM production marks the return of actor John Turturro, who plays the title role, and reprises Turturro's work with director Andrei Belgrader (Endgame, 2008 Spring Season). The Master Builder is the story of Halvard Solness, a middle-aged architect who comes to believe he has willed his professional accomplishments into reality, as though imbued with a God-given power. This psychologically complex character is plagued by ambition, doubt, and guilt; his own marriage is frozen in the sorrow of his children's deaths that resulted from a fire that ultimately led him to profit.
