    KURT WEILL SONGPLAY

    Talents of Kurt Weill, Bertolt Brecht, adapter Jonathan Eaton, and director Rob Walker converge, coalesce, and combine to create a song story of strangers brought together somewhere between Mandalay and yesterday in a shadowy, seedy gin mill with a rich patina of chiaroscuro and memory.
