About this show

Lost in the Stars, based on Alan Paton's novel Cry, the Beloved Country, with music by Kurt Weill and book and lyrics by Maxwell Anderson. This story of life in South Africa under apartheid stirred generations to action and was the basis for a beautiful, brooding, dramatic musical that produced not only the immortal title song, but an entire score that pulses with the life of a people. It opened at the Music Box Theater on October 30, 1949, and played 273 performances. Lost in the Stars will be directed by Gary Griffin
