About This Show

Two-time Tony and Emmy Award winner Bebe Neuwirth stars in Here Lies Jenny, featuring the music of Kurt Weill. Presented by The Zipper Theatre, Brent Peek and Maria Di Dia, the production is conceived and directed by Tony Award winner Roger Rees, featuring choreography by Tony Award winner Ann Reinking, with music direction and supervision by Leslie Stifelman.

Jenny, following her guiding star, roams the dark city streets and, drawn in by its haunting music, she tumbles down into a dock-side gin joint. As she gives herself to the spinning songs — and to the darkly handsome men that have now fallen under her spell — Jenny confronts the romantic pulse of her poignant, funny, and turbulent existence. As she and her lovesick companions beat out the soundtrack of her life on the worn wooden floors, Jenny discovers a strength that even she didn’t know she had — the courage to face the dawning of another day.

Here Lies Jenny features the music of Kurt Weill with the lyrics of Bertolt Brecht, Roger Fernay, Ira Gershwin, Langston Hughes, Alan Jay Lerner, Maurice Magre, Ogden Nash, Franz Werfel and Kurt Weill.

There is no performance on Wednesday, May 4th and two added evening performances Sunday, May 22 at 7 p.m. and Monday, May 23rd at 8 p.m.
