“Imagine the Marx Brothers and Tom Stoppard collaborating on a play.” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinal) In this innovative comedy by playwright and screenwriter Itamar Moses (Outrage, Boardwalk Empire), seven rival musicians resort to a hilarious battle of wit, bribery, and blackmail to win the most sought-after musical post in Europe. Set in 1722 Leipzig, Germany, “Moses uses an obscure historical incident as a jumping-off point for this funny, fiercely intelligent romp.” (Los Angeles Times)
