Event Description:
Written in 1937 by Marc Blitzstein, The Cradle Will Rock is a musical allegory about political corruption and corporate greed. Set in “Steeltown, USA,” it follows the efforts of Larry Foreman to unionize the town’s workers. He’s thwarted at every turn by Mr. Mister, a local businessman who controls the town’s factory, newspaper, and church. Cradle was originally produced by the Federal Theatre Project and directed by Orson Welles. Four days before its opening night on Broadway, the Works Progress Administration barred the opening of any projects due to “budget cuts.” To circumvent the injunction on opening nights, the show was performed with Blitzstein playing piano on stage and the cast members singing their parts from the audience. That rebellious spirit lives on in each production of the powerful Cradle Will Rock.
