Zastrozzi is a man at the height of his power. Physically, spiritually, intellectually, he is the master criminal of all Europe and he stands poised to bring society to its knees before him.

How far will one man go and how much carnage will he rain upon his own works to finally achieve his revenge? George F. Walker’s sweeping epic brings us to a time and a place unlike any you’ll see on stage this year. Directed by Keith Kollee. Details
