Queen City Theatre Company is no stranger to dramatic stagings, so Stephen Sondheim's Passion doesn't fall out of bounds. The Tony Award-winning Broadway classic comes as yet another surprise to a season that's included a zippy take on Xanadu The Musical. In the erotic Passion, directed by Glenn T. Griffin, managing director Kristian Wedolowski takes the role of an army captain — such a serious character compared to his last role, in Most Fabulous Story Ever Told — who is stuck in a remote Italy-based military zone in 1863. There, he's forced to re-evaluate his love affair with a married woman after his colonel's homely cousin begs for his desire.
