Cleveland Public Theatre
Professional Theatre

Presented by: The Musical Theatre Project

Show Description:
No composer wrote edgier, more haunting music for the theater than Kurt Weill, beginning with his trailblazing work in Berlin, The Threepenny Opera. But when Weill fled Nazi Germany and settled in New York City in the early 1930s, his American musicals such as Johnny Johnson, Street Scene and Lost in the Stars proved nearly as provocative, tackling the most serious of social and political issues. Hear Weill's bracing songs - whose lyricists include Langston Hughes, Maxwell Anderson and Alan Jay Lerner - reinterpreted for a contemporary audience by some of Cleveland's leading singers and instrumentalists.
