Or, add your own...plenty of eating places located very close to the theater, reasonably priced & a little higher end if that's what you are looking for. Public parking was a little difficult, so might as well park in the parking structure on Maryland as the first 90 mins. are free. Total cost of just the performance was $1!!!!

The venue is incredible, the choice of material was a daunting exercise, but the production was brilliant. And to have the original Broadway star introduce it all with some backstage stories about Kurt Weill.....what a treasure.

My seats were...continued

More Information


Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Street Scene is a highly dramatic musical about a day in the life of a New York tenement, where seduction, betrayal and murder all play a part. Composer Kurt Weill (Threepenny Opera) broke new ground using an unusual combination of musical styles—some Puccini-esque, some jazz, jitterbug and even gospel. _

Street Scene_ has tremendous cast and musical requirements and therefore is rarely performed. Musical Theatre Guild is pleased to present it as a special concert event.

Play by Elmer Rice

Music by Kurt Weill

Lyrics by Langston Hughes
