About this show

Join the 90th birthday tribute to Bernstein and Lerner with the New York Premiere of A White House Cantata. Leonard Bernstein's A White House Cantata is fashioned from the historically controversial and short-lived Broadway musical 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, which he wrote in collaboration with Alan J. Lerner. The Cantata depicts the absurdity of period social hierarchies within the first 100 years of the United States' executive mansion using 11 presidents, selected first ladies, and three generations of black servants while illustrating the exclusivity of the American dream amongst the white privileged class.
