Once banned for its hot-button social commentary, this landmark jazz opera serves up its comedic drama in a satisfying cocktail of classical, pop and musical theatre. As relevant today as it was when Orson Welles directed its 1937 debut, our CRADLE might stir up a little controversy even now. Not to worry…our Nashville-studded cast will soften Blitzstein’s barbs.
