Berlin to Broadway with Kurt Weill: A Musical Voyage is a joyous and moving celebration of Kurt Weill, a cantor's son and one of the most extraordinary composers of the twentieth century. Weill's greatest theatre songs are presented in a fluid blend of music and story, spanning twenty eventful years, from Von Hindenburg and Hitler in Germany to Roosevelt and Truman in the U.S.

 

Greeted and ushered along by a charming guide, audiences are invited to board the musical vessel that is Kurt Weill's rise to international acclaim.

 

Setting sail in the Berlin of the1920s, Mr. Weill's cross-continental and international travels are described with immaculately crafted narration, surrounded by the composer's lushest and most noteworthy works – including The Threepenny Opera, Knickerbocker Holiday, Lady in the Dark, One Touch of Venus, and Lost in the Stars. An intoxicating retrospective, Berlin to Broadway with Kurt Weill perfectly fills Weill connoisseurs' cravings and sends those, otherwise unfamiliar with his work, away from the theatre with an appreciation for the musical genius that is Kurt Weill.
