Scenes and Songs from the Federal Theatre Project
The Federal Theatre Project, led by Hallie Flanagan from 1935 to 1939, was one of the most significant cultural events of the 20th century. The Indelible Voices Project presents a program of images, scenes and songs from some of the Federal Theatre Project’s greatest productions such as “It Can’t Happen Here” (Sinclair Lewis’ story of fascism coming to America), “Revolt of the Beavers” (a children’s play described as a “Marxist Mother Goose”), “Triple A Plowed Under” (a “living newspaper”), as well as Mark Blitzstein’s operatic masterpiece “The Cradle Will Rock”.
