A Nightingale Sang:
A New Musical in Concert
Saturday, May 4th, 2019
at The Cambridge Arts Theatre
Romani-Jew Gaelleon Pfeiffer, born of sin and disappointment into a world that can only see the colour of his olive skin, finds himself on the wrong side of Poland's Nazi Invasion.
In a twist of fate, Gael is reunited with his childhood best friend, Cary Schoenberg- now a high-ranking SS official who entangles him in a white lie and an irrefutable job offer that becomes a matter of life or death.
Inspired by stories from 'Leszno Street-' The Broadway of the Warsaw Ghetto, A Nightingale Sang is breathtaking, heartbreaking and deeply inspirational.
'A Nightingale Sang' has been specifically altered for this concert. Proceeds from this concert will go towards our Summer 2019 musical, Once Upon a Mattress.
