THE CRADLE WILL ROCK Comes to Theater 2020

THEATER 2020, Brooklyn Heights' NY award winning professional theater company is pleased to announce its June 2019 run of the masterwork "THE CRADLE WILL ROCK," in a limited run of 16 performances (indoors & out) Friday, June 7th - Sunday, June 30th, 2019.

Marc Blitzstein's riveting musical The Cradle will Rock was born in 1937 during the Great Depression. Cradle sings a tale of the downtrodden, the 99%, who ultimately rise together. In Cradle we see artists selling out to the wealthy, healthcare influenced by big money, the press owned by big business, the church controlled by its donors and war encouraged for corporate greed. Sound familiar? Cradle's genesis, and the events surrounding its opening night, represents a seminal moment in American Musical Theater history. A video of the original producer, John Houseman, describing that amazing opening can be found here:
