World Premiere

Tim Robbin’s 

Cradle Will Rock

Directed/adapted by Professor Patricia Miller

 

From the stage to the screen and back again!

World premier stage adaptation from Tim Robbin’s ground breaking 1999 film.

Information http://bit.ly/CCSF_Fall_Show

It is 1936, and enfant terrible Orson Wilson is staging a progressive musical (Marc Blitzstein’s The Cradle Will Rock). Meanwhile Roosevelt’s New Deal and public art fight for their very existence and the show is at risk. As Reds are baited at home, and fascism grows abroad, violence spills onto the street. Fat cat Nelson Rockefeller hires monumental artist Diego Rivera to paint "Man at the Crossroads"; Vaudevillians cling to old routines; a rich Countess goes " slumming", and starving theatre artists make their voices heard over the din of poverty and strikes.

CCSF is thrilled to stage this hilarious and poignant story under the shadow of Diego Rivera's mural in an interactive drama with music.
