Between 1930 and 1970, Leonard Bernstein and Kurt Weill, both successful classical composers, turned their gifts to the Broadway stage. Their unforgettable songs, with lyrics by such luminaries as Ogden Nash, Maxwell Anderson, Stephen Sondheim, Betty Comden, and Adolf Green, expressed the tenor of the times, and became popular hits and part of our American musical vernacular.
One Touch of Genius is both an exploration of the lives of Bernstein and Weill and a tribute to the exuberance, wit, and dark beauty of their Broadway songs. The program will include music from On the Town, One Touch of Venus, Lost in the Stars, Wonderful Town, Lady in the Dark, Candide, Street Scene, West Side Story, Trouble in Tahiti, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Peter Pan, and Knickerbocker Holiday.
