David R Gammons

William Makepeace Thackeray’s witty and acerbic social satire of 19th-Century English mores and cultural attitudes VANITY FAIR comes to rollicking life in this fast-paced and surprisingly contemporary “Im-morality Play.” What do you want, and what are you willing to do to get it? The quest for love, sex, money, status, and power takes Becky Sharp and a cast of zany characters for a roller coaster ride! Who will end up on top as Fortune’s Wheel spins dizzily?
