Carolina Actors Studio Theatre (CAST) opens its season this fall with Master Class, Tony Award-winner Terrence McNally's dramatic ode to opera diva Maria Callas. An international celebrity, La Divina Callas was adored by her fans and was the subject of constant media attention, including gossip about her jet-set life with the wealthy Greek ship-owner Aristotle Onassis. McNally weaves brilliant theater into the setting of master classes conducted by the now legendary Callas, who meditates on her life and art with an ecstatic mix of soliloquies, reveries and recitals. Rich, vivid, satisfying theater, Master Class provides electric, honest, passionate and often cruel lessons. Master Class runs Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (matinee) from September 10 - September 27. Tickets can be purchased online at www. ncCAST.com or call the box office at 704-455-8542. CAST is located at 1118 Clement Ave in Plaza-Midwood, just off Central Ave. Caption for photo: Cynthia Farbman as Maria Callas in Terrence McNally's Master Class at CAST Theatre
