A New Musical!
Mandell Weiss Theatre
Book and Lyrics by Carson Kreitzer
Music by Matt Gould
Choreography by Raja Feather Kelly
Directed by Rachel Chavkin
In 1917, Polish painter Tamara de Lempicka and her aristocrat husband fled the Russian Revolution to the dubious safety of Paris. Relying on her raw talent and relentless ambition, she soon emerges as a star of the Parisian bohemian art scene. But as the world around her teeters on chaos, Tamara finds herself torn between her husband and the passion and decadence ignited by her free-spirited muse Rafaela. A thrilling pop-infused score drives this epic new musical through decades of political upheaval and the personal turmoil of a woman caught between two worlds. A remarkable true story of a painter who transformed herself from penniless refugee to an icon of the art world — and an interesting look at the beauty and danger of one woman pursuing it all.

An album of never-before-seen World War II-era photographs arrives at the desk of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum archivist Rebecca Erbelding. As Rebecca and her team of historians begin to unravel the shocking story behind the images, the album soon makes headlines around the world. In Germany, a businessman sees the album online and recognizes his own grandfather in the photos. He begins a journey of discovery that will take him into the lives of other Nazi descendants — in a reckoning of his family’s past and his country’s history. Here There Are Blueberries tells the story of these photographs, and what they reveal about the Holocaust and our own humanity.
A Play With Music
Mandell Weiss Forum

Original Music by Sinuhé Padilla
Directed by José Zayas
A group of Latin American immigrants gather in a community center in New York City for a fandango – a festive community celebration where stories are brought to life through live performance, music, and dance. The group bonds over the concern for their loved ones in the middle of their dangerous journey to the US and worry for their families left behind in their home countries. But amid the cheerful preparations and warm greetings of friends old and new, fears of a city-wide ICE raid permeate the party. Yet in the spirit of the fandango, their resilience and camaraderie grows as strangers become friends, friends become family, and the music plays on. Inspired by interviews with immigrants, this joy-filled play with music is a heartfelt look in to the lives of the real people behind the immigration headlines.

Welcome to St. Petersburg in the 1990s – the Berlin Wall has fallen, the Soviet Union has dissolved and opportunity abounds. But barely-competent government surveillance workers Euvgeny and Dmitri find themselves lost in their strange new world of glasnost, perestroika and McDonald’s. When they’re assigned to track Katya, a fallen pop-star with international allure, a love triangle, mistaken identities and some really shoddy espionage tactics are set in motion. It’s possible they might just make it out of this mess and find happiness – if only they could make a decision. A world-premiere comedy about the curse of freedom and having to choose between the Filet-o-Fish and the Big Mac.
PLUS! A re-imagined classic co-directed by Tony Award winner Christopher Ashley and Helen Hayes Award winner Will Davis AND a soon-to-be-announced musical launching in Spring 2023!
