Kurt Weill on Broadway, an evening celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Broadway premiere of One Touch of Venus, is presented at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space Oct. 7.
Directed by Richard Jay-Alexander with musical direction by Weill specialist James Holmes, the 8 PM concert also features excerpts from Lady in the Dark, Street Scene, Love Life and Lost in the Stars. Ted Chapin hosts.
Attendees can expect to hear such songs as "It Never Was You," "I'm a Stranger Here Myself," "West Wind," "Oh, Fabulous One," "One Life to Live," "Lonely House," "Lost in the Stars," "September Song," "Love Song" and more.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
