A Cabaret Musical
Books, Lyrics & Music by Deborah Henson-Conant
In 1840, Robert Schumann wrote the song cycle “Frauenliebe und Leben” (A Woman’s Life And Love) – a woman tells the story of first meeting her love, through their marriage, to his death. “The Letter” is a modern-day version of Schumann’s classic. This time the woman is a nightclub singer. The man is a married businessman. And the outcome is significantly different.
