A Beautiful Place – a new musical celebrating the life of artist Friedl Dicker-Brandeis, who was deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp in 1942. There, Friedl secretly taught classes to hundreds of children, giving them the ability to escape the world around them by using their imaginations and the remarkable power of art. The legacy of these pieces continues to inspire and remind us how beauty and hope can exist within the darkness of despair. Written by Linda DeArmond Grady and Michael Grady, with music by Craig Bohmer and lyrics by Steven Mark Kohn, directed by David Ira Goldstein, music directed by Craig Bohmer, this musical can be seen onstage May 6 at 7 p.m. and May 7 at 3 p.m.
