Kurt Weill (1900-1950)
Book by Moss Hart, lyrics by Ira Gershwin
Stage direction Anna Pool
Set & costume design Madeleine Boyd
Liza Elliott Alexia Macbeth
It was Weill’s first Broadway hit, with moods both sweet and sweeping as the modern American woman relives the demands on her life. Underpinning the work is the familiar song “My Ship”, which has been covered by everyone from Judy Garland to Jessye Norman.
Fantastic show, magnificent Ms Elliot
