A celebration of Brecht through his poems, stories, songs, and plays, Brecht on Brecht celebrates one of the 20th century's greatest and most prolific playwrights with a stunning, kaleidoscopic, 90-minute revue of Brecht's life's work. Featuring poems, stories & scenes by Brecht, and songs by Kurt Weill & 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. TBTB originally produced Brecht On Brecht 20 years ago, shortly after the horrific events of 9/11.

"Brecht On Brecht hauntingly mirrored our feelings during that time in the world. Twenty years later, after a year and a half of fear and isolation, 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." TBTB Artistic Director, Nicholas Viselli
