James and I just bought tickets to see David Gordon's "Uncivil Wars: Collaborating with Brecht & Eisler" at The Kitchen. We try to see everything David Gordon does, and when a work includes his wife/partner Valda Setterfield, John Kelly, and Estelle Parsons as performers, how could you miss it? It's also a great chance to hear some of the music of Hanns Eisler, one of the best and sadly underknown leftist composers of the 20th Century. If you like the Kurt Weill/Bertolt Brecht collaborations, you'll like the Eisler even more I suspect.
Speaking of Weill/Brecht, we recently watched the new Criterion DVD of "The Threepenny Opera" (1931). Highly recommended!
