Anthems of Anxiety & Resistance from the Dan Fishback Songbook
Thursday, May 18 | Musical theater probably won't topple fascism, but it couldn't hurt! At the dawn of this terrifying new era, playwright/performer Dan Fishback presents a night of songs from The Material World Trilogy -- a series of plays about Jewish resistance and Jewish trauma, spanning two millennia from the ancient Hebrew revolt against the Greek Empire to Jewish opposition to Israeli apartheid. Joined by a coterie of stars from Broadway and beyond including Chip Zien, Molly Pope and Cole Escola, Revolution Hangout will feature music from The Material World (named one of the "Top 10 shows of 2012" by Time Out New York), and mark the debut of songs from the trilogy's upcoming final chapter, Rubble Rubble. Revolution Hangout is directed by Stephen Brackett with musical direction from Matthew Aument.
