We launch our season with Marc Blitzstein’s infamous musical, a biting critique of corruption, unrestrained capitalism, and income inequality as relevant today as it was in 1937. Set in “Steeltown, USA,” the story follows the efforts of Larry Foreman to unionize local workers and combat wicked, greedy businessman Mr. Mister, who controls the town's factory, press, church, and social organizations.
The Cradle Will Rock kicks-off our anniversary season and features a cast of current students, faculty, and alumni.
