Marc Blitzstein's No for an Answer opens in San Francisco

Marc Blitzstein's No for an Answer opens in San Francisco

The American Conservatory Theater Master of Fine Arts Program presents the world premiere staging of gay composer Marc Blitzstein's No for an Answer, a musical drama about working-class men and women struggling against social injustice, on Monday, October 22. The show premiered as a benefit concert in 1941 (featuring a 20-year-old Carol Channing accompanied by the composer at the piano), but its left-of-center politics kept the show from ever securing funding for a stage run. Blitzstein is best known for his Depression-era musical The Cradle Will Rock. No for an Answer runs through November 10 at the Zeum Theater at Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco.
