Brecht on Brecht

About This Show

Brecht on Brecht celebrates one of the 20th-century’s greatest and most prolific playwrights with a stunning, kaleidoscopic, 90-minute revue of his life’s work. Featuring poems, stories, and scenes by Brecht and songs by Kurt Weill and Hans Eisler, Brecht on Brecht explores the political and social issues he faced throughout his life, as an artist fleeing the Nazi Regime and as an exile, ultimately landing in America. Originally produced by TBTB just months after 9/11, Brecht on Brecht hauntingly mirrored our feelings during that time in the world. Twenty years later, Brecht’s words once again resound with pitch-perfect clarity, echoing all we are experiencing in our world today – and offering guidance and hope for these uncertain times.
