Performances begin tonight of Vanity Fair, Kate Hamill's adaptation of the classic William Makepeace Thackeray novel. Directed by Jessica Stone, the production will run through May 12 at American Conservatory Theater's Geary Theater.

The story is set in a society that cares more for good birth and good manners than for skill. Becky Sharp — poor, plain, and devilishly clever — is determined to defy the odds through risky romantic entanglements, shady business practices, and social climbing at any cost. She won't stop until the world lies at her feet.

Rebekah Brockman, Dan Hiatt, Alyssa Wilmoth Keegan, Anthony Michael Lopez, Adam Magill, Maribel Martinez, and Vincent Randazzo star in the production. The creative team includes Alexander Dodge (scenic designer), Jennifer Moeller (costume designer), David Weiner (lighting designer), Jane Shaw (sound designer and original music), and Connor Gallagher (choreographer).
