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

This is a very appealing musical play. The story line is one we've heard before. Poor boy meets rich girl and there are social conflicts. The lyrics are fabulous even though they sound famliar( Fiddler on the Roof?)
It should be Off Broadway for those looking for investment in a sure success.

With book by Cambridge's own Amy Merrill and music and lyrics by popular songwriter and activist Si Kahn. Directed by The Nora Theatre Company's Associate Director Daniel Gidron.
