The Cradle Will Rock

March 9, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - March 18, 2018 @ 5:00 pm


Brick Road Theatre presents “The Cradle Will Rock” at the Cox Building Playhouse March 9-18.

This show has been called “one of the most historically significant pieces of American theater ever written,” and is the only show ever shut down by the Federal government. Composer Marc Blitzstein wrote it in a specific political and social context, but the questions it raises regarding economic power, class structure, agency, hypocrisy, and opposing forces remain as relevant today as in 1937. Rather than accusing or lecturing, this piece uses humor and 1930’s musical traditions to reveal and reflect our ongoing challenges, and is a tribute to the artists, who, in 1937, risked everything for art. 

Tickets $25 available online.  More information available here.
