‘My Parsifal Conductor’ Begins Previews Off Broadway

The new Off-Broadway comedy, “My Parsifal Conductor,” is written by Emmy award, Writers’ Guild award, and Christopher award winner Allan Leicht. The show began previews on September 25 (opening night is on Oct. 11) and will run until November 3 at the Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater at the West Side YMCA, 10 W 64th Street in New York City.

Musical genius Richard Wagner (Eddie Kobich) and his devoted wife Cosima (Claire Brownell) find themselves in a moral, political and musical dilemma when King Ludwig of Bavaria (Carlo Bosticco) insists that the son of a rabbi, Hermann Levi (Geoffrey Cantor), conduct the premiere of Wagner’s sacred final opera, Parsifal. In this comedic spin on real-life events, Maestro Levi must consider his complex relationship with the Wagners. Does art have its “special needs,” after all? “My Parsifal Conductor” is the world premiere comedy that dares to probe that question.

“My Parsifal Conductor” is directed by the founder of New York’s Chelsea Theatre Center, Robert Kalfin, and produced by the award-winning not-for-profit theatre company The Directors Company, by special arrangement with producer Ted Snowdon.
