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.
