2 Pianos

4 Hands

A talented duo of would-be concert pianists trade stories of pushy parents, eccentric teachers, endless practice, and dreams of stardom. Piano wizardry and roaring comedy combine as “piano nerds” Ted and Richard play classical, pop, and everything in between, all while portraying dozens of characters that took part in their humbling quest for musical greatness.

Spotlight on the 2024-25 Season 🎨

By Daniel Jamieson
with music by Ian Ross
directed by Elizabeth Margolius

September 5 – October 6, 2024

Artist Marc Chagall and his poet wife Bella were partners in life and on canvas, their love story immortalized in a feast of music, dance, and memory as dreamy as one of Chagall’s paintings.
