By George F. Walker
Directed by Tony Simotes
Zastrozzi -- self-proclaimed master criminal of the world -- is out to seek revenge on his arch-nemesis, the hapless impressionist painter, Verezzi, who Zastrozzi believes killed his mother. Zastrozzi concocts a diabolical plot to destroy Verezzi using Matilda, his sometimes mistress and the most acclaimed seductress in Europe, as bait. A NYTHEATER.com review concluded, "Zastrozzi is all about Heroes and Villains, Grand Gestures and Great Loves. Above all it's about our common love -- and need -- for drama that's larger than life; for outsized personalities treading boldly across life's glorious stage."
