About this show

Old Wicked Songs is the story of Stephen Hoffman, an American piano prodigy who ventures to Vienna to study, hoping to shatter the artistic block that has plagued his career and reconnect with his music. Assigned to a professor he hates and resentful of the simple pieces he's forced to study, it seems impossible that they will ever get along. This Pulitzer Prize nominated drama explores the fascinating connections between art and guilt, compassion and identity as it mirrors the structures and themes of the piece they study--Schumann's Dichterliebe.
