Michael Hollinger's latest play draws on his experience as a string musician, and critics all over the region have sung its praises. Hollinger has penned a slew of other noteworthy works including Red Herring and Tooth and Claw. On the surface, Opus is about Beethoven's Opus 131, but it's also a deeply human glimpse into the lives of musicians, seasoned throughout with rich music. The play stars Barrymore Award-winner Greg Wood.
