Festival Passports available
America emerges from the Great Depression while Germany descends into darkness and chaos. Two brothers, princes of musical royalty, reach to each other across hardship and time as the world tilts again toward war. Featuring music by Richard Strauss, Fats Waller, Kurt Weill, Fletcher Henderson, Mozart, Brahms, and stunning original cast member songs, From Weimar to Vaudeville is Tom Allen’s vivid imagining of the 20s and 30s: dirty as ever and roaring loudly enough to be heard half-way ‘round the world.
