Peter Shaffer's Continued Quest for God in Amadeus


In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:

Peter Shaffer's Amadeus premiered at the National Theatre of Great Britain in November of 1979 and quickly became the most successful play in that theatre's history, having an extended run of over a year.1 The play received the same enthusiastic reception when it opened in November of 1980 at the National Theatre in Washington D. C., and when it moved a month later to New York's Broadhurst Theatre.
