“The Cradle Will Rock” by Marc Blitzstein: 2015

Directed by Andrew Vaught. A musical unlike any other. Written at the height of the Federal Theatre and Great Depression, Cradle artfully exposes the wrongs of society. As the residents of Steeltown fight for a Union, a prostitute finds herself in jail with the city’s finest luminaries. As the audience explores how each of these characters sacrificed their integrity to the powerful “Mr. Mister,” Cradle explores the way that money, and the desire for money, corrupt even the best-intentioned citizens. Bold and stark in its musicality, The Cradle Will Rock presents the struggles of everyday people fighting against a power much bigger than themselves, and the bravery it takes to fight on against a stacked deck and an open shop. This paean to the right of individuals to make a decent living could find no better location than the Right-to-Work state of Louisiana.
