SynopsisRevue by Jonathan Eaton (1996), incorporating songs by Weill with texts by various authors. An original drama that uses Weill's songs as vehicles for much of the plot and action. Six characters--four men and two women--are waiting for a ship that will take them to the utopia of Youkali. As they interact, their individual histories emerge, and attractions and repulsions are formed within the group. After a series of confrontations, they are able to make peace with each other and with themselves. Finally they realize that a journey to Youkali will not solve their problems, and they are better off remaining where they are.
RolesSoprano, mezzo-soprano, 2 tenors, baritone, bass
