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

The Umbrella Center did an admirable job with this one, although I felt that the actors started their performances a little bit too 'high,' leaving them with nowhere to progress by the climactic end. Having seen the original on Broadway, though, they did a quite admirable job, and the set and painting work was very well-done. Only other comment is that the Center needs to do a MUCH better job of marking entrances and using signage for their shows. The entrance and location for a first-time visitor was extremely difficult to find.
Run time is 90 minutes.
