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
Reviews & Ratings
This production by NextDoor Center for the Arts offers unique insight into the psyche of a man so wounded by loss and driven by revenge that his "friend" of choice to cut through the pain is drink, his world that of a lockdown facility, his past projected onto the peers of his present ... our Sweeney has a close shave with self-destruction as he drinks to kill the pain, to kill the memories, to kill his future. That is, until he ultimately cuts the cord of his pain and falls into self-forgiveness and salvation — reminding us all that sometimes the closest we can come to flying is falling.
