The Cradle Will Rock by Marc Blitzstein
A HOWL ! ARTS PROJECT 2009 presentation.

On a June evening in 1938 director Orson Welles, producer John Houseman and the cast and crew of a new Broadway musical were locked out of their theater on opening night by armed servicemen under orders from the Federal Govt. Without costumes, sets, lights or sound, Welles and Houseman found an unused theater, rented an upright piano and marched their audience up Broadway for what has become the most historic theatrical opening ever recorded. The entire libretto performed from the audience by actors forbidden to step onto the stage, received a 40 minute standing ovation, as legend has it. An operetta about greed, corruption and the plight of the worker could not be more timely.

This production originally produced by downtown Music Productions, East Village Concert Series and St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery.
Music Direction: Mimi Stern-Wolfe; Directed and Choreographed by Lisa Brailoff.
Artistic Coordinator: Jeannine Otis.
