THE FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE
“The Public Theater has long been one of the city’s prime incubators for ambitious new musicals, from A Chorus Line through Caroline, or Change and the more recent Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and Fun Home. That admirable tradition continues with The Fortress of Solitude, adapted from Jonathan Lethem’s Brooklyn coming-of-age novel by two of our most literate writers: Itamar Moses (Bach at Leipzig) and Civilians songsmith Michael Friedman. Three-time Obie honoree Daniel Aukin (Bad Jews) directs the world premiere. Sept 30–Nov 2”

"I think of trash as a record of existence. They’re the archeological evidence of the present moment. History is permeating everything, whether you know it or not." —Abigail DeVille
