A wonderfully original canvas against which to hear Brecht and Weill’s greatest hits! Mr Brecht! Are you now or have you ever been...? is a funny, revealing piece of theatre based on Berthold Brecht’s public interview with the House of Un-American Activities Committee in 1946 in Washington. Interspersed within the drama a cast of singers will perform songs including Mack the Knife, The Alabama Song, Pirate Jenny, September Song, Surabaya Johnny, Bilbao Song and many more. Director Richard Williams sets a snappy pace of singing and dancing, in a witty, poignant and spicy evening of words and music, celebrating two of the most original and politically astute creators of the 20th century. The ensemble is led by soprano Sarah Gabriel and tenor Paul Ryan with a six- strong company of actors and accompanied by two young musicians from the Royal Academy of Music.
