Reading of a New Musical: Bremer’s Moving Picture Musical Dictionary
Staged reading of Bremer’s Moving Picture Musical Dictionary
1907, New York City—A prodigy concert pianist and her grandmother escape their torment in Russia, and find a home at a small vaudeville theater in New York as the silent film era begins and a new era in the entertainment business begins with it. Directors invent the language of film, vaudevillians become movie stars, and musicians bring the movies to life. A new musical, Bremer’s Moving Picture Musical Dictionary, explores the world of a community of artists and entrepreneurs that helped film evolve from a curiosity to a cultural force.
