LoveMusik

Prince's first Broadway show in almost a decade follows the unlikely love affair of German composer Kurt Weill ("The Threepenny Opera") and his Viennese muse, singer Lotte Lenya. The action moves from Berlin to Broadway, with stops in Paris and Hollywood. The style of LoveMusik dotted with numbers from Weill's eclectic songbook, incorporates elements of German expressionism, vaudeville, '40s musicals and torch-song cabaret. The shifting tone reflects the permutations of a couple who loved as large as they lived, reinventing themselves during the turbulent '30s and '40s as they moved from Europe to America. The New York Times called it "unmissable."
