Why See The Cradle Will Rock?
In an era of Occupy Wall Street?style rebellion against corporate greed, Marc Blitzstein's rousing 1937 battle hymn to the proletariat feels remarkably fresh and relevant today.
Set against the backdrop of a steel strike and peopled with fat-cat capitalists, brutal policemen, heroic union organizers, and a warm-hearted prostitute, "Cradle" is a powerful political document, a funny, potent satire, and an extraordinary piece of theater history.
