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

I detested the character of Julianna in the beginning, but as the play moved along I developed a true sense of compassion for her. Julianna's husband, who I also detested, came off as cold and callous, but became quite a hero, very loving. The play kept my attention. Very well acted, and entertaining. I'd recommend this play.
The show contains adult language and themes. Parental discretion is advised.
