Actors from 'Brundibar'

‘BRUNDIBAR'/‘CONTACT WITH THE ENEMY'
7:30 p.m., the Weekend Theater. $14-$18. 

The Weekend Theater concludes its 2007-2008 season with a World War II-themed double bill. The opera “Brundibar” was originally performed by the children of the Theresienstadt concentration camp in occupied Czechoslovakia, using only the instruments available to them at the camp. Reminiscent of “Hansel and Gretel,” the opera follows the travails of two fatherless children who're trying to earn money for their sick mother in a marketplace controlled by an evil organ grinder, Brundibar. The second half of the bill features “Contact with the Enemy,” a one-act play about two World War II vets who meet by chance in front of the Holocaust Museum and realize that they once knew each other, giving rise to conversations and recollections of long suppressed events. The double bill runs through May 18.
