Mother Courage: An MP3 Promo
An Initial Taste of Jack Forbes Wilsons work on Off The Walls MOTHER COURAGE.
A good portion of my job involves receiving and processing press releases from local theatre companies. A couple of days ago, I received an interesting one for Off The Wallâ€™s upcoming production of Bertolt Brechtâ€™s Mother Courage.
A show that has been in the making for quite some time, Off The Wallâ€™s staging of Brechtâ€™s classic includes original music written by Jack Forbes Wilson. A consummate professional, Wilson was most recently seen in the role of Liberace in the Milwaukee Repâ€™s Stackner Cabaret.
A press release for the show that came in a couple of days back included an MP3 of Wilsonâ€™s May Mornings with lyrics by Dale Gutzman, who adapted the play for the stage at Off The Wall. An all-new composition, it appears to be a variation on the Fraternization Song from the original text. Hereâ€™s what it sounds like.
Off The Wall Theatreâ€™s production of Mother Courage runs March 24th â€“ April 3rd. For reservations, call 414-327-3552.
