The Blue Flower
a musical by Jim and Ruth Bauer – directed by Kit Baker
September 24 – October 16, 2016
“In this Rocky Mountain premiere of the award-winning 21st century musical, “The Blue Flower,” Kurt Weill goes tête-à-tête with Hank Williams as the action follows a circle of idealistic artists and lovers – “sturm n’ twang” style – in a dream-like romp through the artists’ ateliers, battlefields and haunted avenues of bohemian Paris, World War I and the Weimar Republic, ending in a magic moment of revelation and healing in Central Park.
This brilliantly portrayed story is steeped in love and redemption, and will captivate you with sights and sounds from our accompanying eight-piece Weimar band.”
composer/lyricist of “Wicked,” “Godspell” and “Pippin”
