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

Some of the lines were clever, but the entire show seemed to have no cohesion, no purpose other than to take old stereotypes and expose them,tiresomely one more time. And to what end? Actors did a good job,but when you walked out there was nothing memorable except a judge who disrobed for no apparent reason.
<p>It’s hay fever season, and in the courthouse a judge is popping antihistamines like candy. The case unfolding before him involves a motley bunch of chauvinists and eccentrics, attorneys and clients alike, whose petty prejudices threaten to unravel the legal process. And then the defendant, who is either a chiropodist or a chiropractor, lands on an ingenious way to bring peace to the Middle East…</p> <p>Masterfully wielding the language of the courtroom, David Mamet creates a world in a microcosm in which shameless fawning and sheer caprice hold sway, and the noble apparatus of law and order degenerates into riotous mayhem.</p>
