MUSICAL THEATRE PRODUCTION: “Street Scene” Music by Kurt Weill, Lyrics by Langston Hughes, Book by Elmer Rice, 7:30 p.m., Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre. Ticketed Event. For tickets and information, call 304-293-SHOW. From the shadow of a tenement building on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in the 1940s, residents cope with the summer heat and fill their days with gossip and plenty of squabbles. Amidst the hubbub of this community, Anna Maurrant is a discontented housewife, while her daughter Rose is finding romance with the boy next door. As tensions build between neighbors and families alike, this tragedy showcases how little we can truly know about people behind closed doors—until it is too late. The show contains operatic arias and ensembles such as “Somehow I Never Could Believe” and “Let Things Be Like They Always Was,” as well as jazz and blues influences in “I Got a Marble and a Star” and “Lonely House.” Some of the more Broadway-style numbers include “Wrapped in a Ribbon and Tied in a Bow,” “Wouldn’t You Like To Be On Broadway?” and “Moon-Faced, Starry-Eyed.” There is also an extended song-and-dance sequence.

An ongoing rehearsal blog is available on the School of Theatre and Dance website at http://ccarts.wvu.edu/theatreanddanceblog.
