"Weill ... was a master of both shadows and light." - Jazz Times

CAP UCLA, in partnership with LACO, welcomes back NYC’s SITI Company with an all-new production of Kurt Weill’s Lost in the Stars, directed by Anne Bogart with music direction by Jeffrey Kahane.

For his final Broadway score, Weill gave passionate voice to this powerful, uncompromising social indictment of apartheid South Africa. He and his librettist Maxwell Anderson adapted Alan Paton’s great novel Cry, the Beloved Country for the Broadway stage in 1949.

The work, which was widely acknowledged as one of the most important works of that season and a landmark in the history of American musical theater, ran for more than 300 performances. However, when the producers learned that for the planned national tour the black cast members were denied the right to stay in the same hotels as the white cast members, the national tour was cancelled, and as a result only a few places in America have ever had the opportunity to see and hear a live performance of the work.

This all-new production in the directorial hands of Anne Bogart and Jeffrey Kahane is a bold and rare chance to revisit Weill’s final score.
