The Cradle Will Rock - - Off-Broadway

In an era of Occupy Wall Street-style rebellion against corporate greed, Marc Blitzstein's 1937 battle hymn to the proletariat feels remarkably fresh. Set against the backdrop of a steel strike and peopled with fat-cat capitalists, brutal policemen, heroic union organizers, and a warm-hearted prostitute, The Cradle Will Rock is a powerful political document, a funny, potent satire, and an extraordinary piece of theater history.
