Show Description:

Germany, 1722. Leipzig's revered organist dies suddenly. Who will replace him and how far will they go to win? Farcical antics ensue.

Leipzig, Germany — 1722. Johann Kuhnau, revered organist of the Thomaskirche, suddenly dies, leaving his post vacant. The town council invites musicians from across the country to audition for the coveted position, among them young Johann Sebastian Bach. In an age where musicians depend on patronage to pursue their craft, the post is a near guarantee of fame and fortune — which is why the 7 candidates are willing to resort to any lengths to secure it. Half AIRPLANE! and half AMADEUS, BACH AT LEIPZIG is a fugue-like farcical web of bribery, blackmail, and betrayal set against the backdrop of questions about humanity, God, and art.
