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

This was an appealing play for parents and children - about the mischievous, mythic Tokaloloshe. Both children and parents were delighted and charmed by the various antics enacted by a cast of young actors, several of whom displayed remarkable aplomb and created characters of great individuality. They were relaxed and comfortable in their roles and obviously having fun, and the play offered many instances of interesting issues that parents could use to initiate important developmental conversations with the children whom they brought to the theater. Fun AND instructional is surely a winning combo.
