"Brecht's plays redefined the very nature of theatrical presentation to address the most pressing concerns of his tumultuous generation," according to CSC. Four of Brecht's seminal works will be read: The Caucasian Chalk Circle, In the Jungle of Cities, The Good Person of Sezuan and Life of Galileo.
The line-up follows:
Life of Galileo, directed by CSC artistic director Brian Kulick, Oct. 20 at 8 PM. Now in its 41st season, CSC is "the award-winning Off-Broadway theatre committed to re-imagining the classical repertory for a contemporary American audience. CSC presents plays from the past that speak directly to the issues of today. As we return to works of the past, we endeavor to keep a clear eye on the future, particularly in terms of the next generation of artists and audiences."
