This bio-musical, directed by Harold Prince, is unmissable - at least for anyone who cherishes stars who mold songs into thrilling windows of revelation. Donna Murphy and Michael Cerveris turn in stunningly shaded performances.

Why See Lovemusik?

Tony Award winners Donna Murphy and Michael Cerveris portray Lotte Lenya and Kurt Weill, an unlikely couple whose often rocky romance lasted for more than a quarter century. Manhattan Theatre Club presents the musical's world premiere.

LoveMusik follows the lives of the unlikeliest of lovers - the brilliant, intellectual German composer Kurt Weill (Michael Cerveris) and a lusty girl from the streets of Vienna who became his muse and star, Lotte Lenya (Donna Murphy). LoveMusik is an epic romance, set in Berlin, Paris, Broadway and Hollywood, spanning 25 years in the lives of this complicated couple.

From their courtship and early collaborations in Europe, through their journey to America and the debut of the landmark musical The Threepenny Opera, LOVEMUSIK gets deep inside this fascinating, complicated partnership.

The musical features some of Weill’s best-loved songs, including Speak Low, Surabaya Johnny, It Never Was You, Mack the Knife and September Song.
