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

Very good play. Excellent acting. I suggested that friends go to Gloucester to see it. Comfortable theatre. Good seats for the matinee. My husband and I bought sandwiches at a shop a few doors from the theatre and ate them around the corner on benches looking out at the water. Delightful day.

A cross-generational tour-de-force ensues when Sarah, a young secretary from the Canadian prairie, finds herself working for the aging Francis Biddle, Attorney General during World War II and the primary judge on the postwar Nuremberg Trials. GSC's limited run of this award-winning drama met with unanimous popular and critical acclaim.

The Gloucester Stage Company was co-founded in 1979 by Geoff Richon, Denny Blodgett, and award-winning playwright Israel Horovitz as a "safe harbor for playwrights and new plays". During its first twenty seasons, under Horovitz's artistic direction, the GSC successfully realized its mission with production of more than 35 world premieres, 15 American premieres, and 25 New England premieres. Plays developed at the GSC have gone on to critical and popular acclaim on Broadway, off-Broadway, across the United States, and around the world. The GSC has received many honors, including numerous Best of Boston awards by Boston drama critics for outstanding and popular work, and, most notably, a New England Theatre Conference Award. Mr Horovitz was honored with Boston's prestigious Elliot Norton Prize for his work with the GSC.
