First Listen To Duncan Sheik's Adaptation Of Brecht's A MAN'S A MAN
A first listen to the score composed by Tony Award-winning SPRING AWAKENING songwriter Duncan Sheik for the new Off-Broadway adaptation of Bertolt Brecht's seminal A MAN'S A MAN is now available to peruse.
"Herr Bertolt Brecht maintains a man's a man / He that's been around since time began," sings the character Galy Gay in the politically-charged allegory.
"Herr Bertolt Brecht" is one of a handful of new songs composed specifically for this new production by Sheik.
The official description of A MAN'S A MAN is as follows: "Welcome to British Colonial India, where the innocent dockworker Galy Gay is rather unorthodoxly enlisted into Her Majesty's Armed Forces. Watch him be "dismantled like a car" and reassembled into the ultimate fighting machine in this early knockabout, anti-just-about-everything farce by the ever impertinent Bertolt Brecht. This production boasts another new score and songs by Tony Award-winning composer Duncan Sheik (SPRING AWAKENING and last season's production of Brecht's THE CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE). A MAN'S A MAN is directed by Brian Kulick and features Jason Babinsky, Justin VivIan Bond, Bill Buell, Gibson Frazier, Martin Moran, Steven Skybell, Stephen Spinella, Ching Valdes-Aran, and Allan K. Washington."
A MAN'S A MAN is set to play January 10 through February 16 Off-Broadway at the Classic Stage Company.
