More about the show…
Kurt Weill was a German-born composer who began writing for theater in the 1920s during the rise of fascism and then fled Nazi Germany for Paris in 1933, ultimately settling in New York in 1935, where he found success writing for Broadway. His provocative songs live on the spectrum between classical art song, jazz, and musical theater, with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht, Langston Hughes, and other poetic luminaries.
