Steerage Song

Steerage Song

September 25 – October 20, 2013 | The Lab Theater

700 N 1st Street, Minneapolis, MN 55401  |  Running time: TBA

By Peter Rothstein and Dan Chouinard • Music Direction by Dan Chouinard • Directed by Peter Rothstein

Ellis Island was the gateway to America — a land of opportunity for some, a land of exclusion for others. 5,000 immigrants a day passed through this “Island of Hope, Island of Tears.” Packed into the steerage of steamships, they left their homelands with few possessions but a wealth of hope, promise and music. Steerage Song is a musical kaleidoscope of their journey to America. Steerage Song premiered in concert form at the Fitzgerald Theater in 2011; creators Peter Rothstein and Dan Chouinard have continued to develop the docu-musical, blending the songs of 20 countries of Old Europe and the rhythms of Tin Pan Alley into a moving, fully-staged, new musical.

December 19-22, 2013 | Pantages Theatre

By Peter Rothstein • With Musical Arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach • Directed by Peter Rothstein

A co-production of Cantus, Theater Latté Da and Hennepin Theatre Trust.

The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence comes a silence, then a song. A German soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing Stille Nacht. Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, peace. A remarkable true story, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it.

Coming on the heels of our popular and critically acclaimed production of Aida, Broadway Re-Imagined returns to the Pantages Theatre with a dynamic and provocative staging of Kander & Ebb’s groundbreaking musical, Cabaret. Produced by Theater Latté Da and Hennepin Theatre Trust, Broadway Re-Imagined taps the strengths of both organizations and Twin Cities’ talent to create innovative stagings of the musicals you know and love. Classic songs like “Willkommen,” “Maybe This Time,” “Money” and, of course, “Cabaret” take you inside the heart of 1930s Berlin to experience the freespirited decadence and heartbreaking desire that is CABARET!
