14.15 Berkeley Season:
Overview
The Cast

World Premiere

French-Armenian singer Charles Aznavour is one of the world’s last living “showmen” who, at 90 years, is still a dazzling performer and songwriter. Created from his rich and diverse catalogue of songs, What Makes a Man is inspired by the life he lived, observed and wrote about. In a moment of personal self-examination, four distinct aspects of one man are born: poet, survivor, performer and prophet, collectively embodied by four extraordinary vocal artists.

A living portrait that deconstructs the fabric of personality, this world premiere piece is being created by Jennifer Tarver, director of Venus in Fur (2013), and Toronto’s Necessary Angel Theatre Company, our Berkeley Street partners for the next three seasons.

"[Jennifer Tarver] is generally regarded as one of the finest talents of her generation"
