WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Set in "Steeltown, USA," The Cradle Will Rock tells the story of Larry Foreman whose efforts to start a workers' union could be thwarted by the wealthy businessman Mr. Mister. Along the way, a wide range of societal characters become involved, taking sides in economic warfare that mirrors today's "great recession." Blitzstein's characters include Mr. Mister's wife and their spoiled children; artists who sell out; struggling shopkeepers and blue-collar workers; immigrant families; a faithless priest; and a charming prostitute named Moll. Proceeds benefit H.E.L.P. (Howl! Emergency Life Project), an emergency services assistance and health fund for eligible and qualifying East Village artists, administered by The Actors Fund.
