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 fairy-tale 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

Hilarious! Lots of slapstick, plays on words, clever set changes. Only three actors play all the characters, which works well for this particular Sherlock Holmes story because Holmes is absent from much of it! Two out of the three actors are strong, the third is good when playing minor characters. Helps to know the story, but definitely not necessary.

Three actors, sixteen roles: The Hound is back!
Remo Airaldi, Bill Mootos and Trent Mills return in our Summer 2010 hit, The Hound of the Baskervilles. If you missed it then, here’s your second chance. Steven Canny and John Nicholson’s fast-paced send-up of the classic Sherlock Holmes novel teems with physical humor and visual gags.
