Head trick Theatre Company Presents "The Cradle Will Rock
Head Trick Theatre, which has previously put on music-heavy productions of straight plays, makes the jump to musical theatre with The Cradle Will Rock. Marc Blitzsteins 1937 musical tells the story of Steeltown, USA, and the ordinary people who fight to stay alive as big business claims Americas interests as its own. Many decades later, not only is the political message that got Cradles premiere shut down still timely, but so is its stripped-down musical style, which combines speak-singing and pop parody with more traditional musical theatre numbers. Head Tricks production will take inspiration from the musicals legendary first performance, where actors played their roles from the audience.
