Lost in the Stars

Lost in the Stars

Music by Kurt Weill | Book & Lyrics by Maxwell Anderson

A journey of loss and grief finds hope in the most unlikely of places.

Based on Alan Paton’s novel Cry, the Beloved Country, Kurt Weill’s musical tragedy places us in apartheid South Africa as two fathers’ tragedies connect them through acts of compassion. Reverend Stephen Kumalo has heard no word from his son, Absalom, for a year. Stephen travels to search for him and meets Absalom’s pregnant girlfriend. He discovers that his son has been arrested for murder, setting into motion a series of events that challenge the foundation of his faith. Stephen and the murdered boy’s father, James Jarvis, find understanding in their grief and discover hope.
