About this show

Theater Schmeater kindles its own Indian Summer heat with The White Devil, a blistering interpretation of the passionate affairs, schemes, and little murders of the Florentine de Medici family, as seen through the eyes of Jacobean poet and playwright John Webster. Set in the 1950's of Joe McCarthy, the House Subcommittee for Un-American Activities, and I Love Lucy, director Linda Lombardi places The White Devil in another time of fear and suspicion. This fresh insight into the political, social and sexual machinations of the de Medicis, the Florentine Republic's First Family, echo in our own time, when public policy screens private crimes, and fascination with celebrity obscures horror.
