Knickerbocker Holiday

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Performer Victor Garber and conductor James Bagwell talk about Kurt Weill’s “Knickerbocker Holiday,” presented by the Collegiate Chorale. It’s a hybrid of theater somewhere between operetta and musical theater, and includes political satire. “Knickerbocker Holiday” is being performed in concert version January 25 and 26, at 8 pm, at Alice Tully Hall.

A few years ago , my sister gave me a CD of Kurt Weill's contributions to the American muscal theater, including "September Song" and "Lost in the Stars", both written in collaboration with Maxwell Anderson. Although the CD is not that widely popular, it features the vibraphonist, Warren Chaison and I enjoy listening to it from time to time.

Weill's first American show was JOHNNY JOHNSTON. Weill and Maxwell Anderson were neighbors in Rockland County.
