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

David Adjmi’s recent Off-Broadway plays, Elective Affinities (a monologue performed by Zoe Caldwell that was the hottest ticket in New York last fall) and Stunning, were hailed by The New Yorker for their “gorgeous blend of narrative, girl talk, and politics.” His play The Evildoers was developed at the Sundance Institute and the Royal Court Theatre in London, and premiered in 2008 at the Yale Repertory Theatre. Other plays include Strange Attractors, and Caligula. Adjmi is the recipient of numerous awards for his work, including the Helen Merrill Award, the Marian Seldes-Garson Kanin Fellowship, and McKnight and Jerome Fellowships from The Playwrights' Center. A collection of his work, Stunning and Other Plays, was published by Theatre Communications Group in 2011. Adjmi is currently at work on a "viral" memoir for HarperCollins. His play 3C premieres at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre in June 2012.
This play is recommended for those in Grade Six and above, and features strong language.
