Stories of War-Stormy Weather: Music and Politics in the 20's, 30's and WWII

Company:
SEAGLASS THEATER COMPANY INC

Stormy Weather honors the remarkable artists who witnessed and responded to the history unfolding around them but were powerless to stop it. From Weimar Berlin and the Cabaret movement through the Great Depression, FDR’s first election and the Blitz, Beth Canterbury and Matthew Larson examine the rise of Hitler and Roosevelt and the circumstances that led to WWII through the music and lyrics of the time. Well-loved songs like Bei Mir Bist du Schoen, Brother Can You Spare a Dime and Stormy Weather are performed alongside remarkable political songs of the era including It’s All a Swindle, London Pride and The Lavender Song.
