by Kate Hamill
adapted from the novel by William Makepeace Thackeray
directed by Stephanette Schwartz-Smith
This rollicking and relevant stage version of Vanity Fair, the classic satire first published in 1848, mirrors the distorted values and hypocrisy of society today. Becky Sharpe, the nasty gold-digger at the center of Thackeray’s sprawling novel, gets a feminist makeover in this 2018 stage version to be born again as a rare theatrical treat—a female character who behaves just as badly as males do without being reformed or punished. “A gift for actors and a goody bag for audiences,” raved The New York Times.
