Theatrical luminary Tony Kushner, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angels in America and the brilliant libretto for Caroline, or Change, penned this delightful adaptation of Brundibar, a remarkable musical fable based on an opera that was first performed in the Czech concentration camp in which its original author was imprisoned. A fairytale opera about two children who must sing in the market to raise money for their ailing mother, Brundibar celebrates the triumph of the helpless over tyranny and the transformative power of art. Supplementing Brundibar is But the Giraffe, a brief Kushner-written companion piece about a young girl who has to make a tough choice. This show is produced by Underground Railway Theater. Learn More

I must say every play was very different, and well written, and thought provoking. Each actor/actress were excellent and it strikes me how much raw talent there is around nowadays, both with actors and playwrights. Well done, would highly recommend the Festival.
