A genuine musical chameleon was Weill; it astonishes that so...

Rocket To The Moon by the Gremlin Theatre, performing at the New Century Theatre

Once a much bally-hoo’d darling of the New York theater – the Group Theatre made its reputation (or at least its money) producing his work in the 1930s – playwright Clifford Odets‘s work seldom finds its way onto contemporary stages.
