A Kurt Weill Cabaret

“Come, turn on the lights so we can see what there is to see: Berlin in lights!”

German-born American composer Kurt Weill revolutionized what theatre could be - both in terms of musical form and satirical content - through his collaborations with Bertolt Brecht in Berlin. Their “epic theatre” exploits led to Weill’s music being banned in his native country, and earned both Weill and Brecht a place on the Gestapo’s hit list. Fleeing to the U.S. in 1935, Weill was quickly influenced by Broadway and jazz, and would ultimately collaborate with many greats of Broadway’s Golden Age: Ira Gershwin, Alan Jay Lerner, and Ogden Nash to name a few.

Longtime friends and artistic collaborators Jasso and Benham present a musical love letter to Weill’s prolific opus.
