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

Although life in a biology lab may sound dull to some, this story of how the teams evolved the structure of the DNA helix is terrific. Each actor defined their character well and stayed well in character, playing off each other very effectively. I greatly enjoyed the show.

This play is entertaining and informative. It illuminated a life many don't know about at all. I thought it might be too "teachy and preachy", but it was funny, deep and very moving. I highly recommend it. The performances were wonderful.
