Old Wicked Songs (The New Jewish Theatre)
Hoping to reconnect with his music and shatter the artistic block that has plagued his career, a young American piano prodigy travels to Vienna in the spring of 1986. He is assigned to a vocal teacher who gives him the “Dicheterliebe” song cycle by Robert Schumann. Marans incorporates the poetry of Heinrich Heine and the music of Robert Schumann into the series of events. Through the sessions between the two men, Marans creates a link between two generations who find they have much more in common than they think. This is the inspirational journey of two very different men who, with music as their one common bond, must find a way to break through their pasts.
