This chapter offers a detailed account of the legendary premiere of The Cradle Will Rock, a renegade production of the Federal Theatre Project directed by Orson Welles and John Houseman. The chapter continues with a history of the many recordings and productions that followed, including Leonard Bernstein’s longstanding involvement with the work (and some consideration of the artistic and personal relationship between Bernstein and Blitzstein). This chapter also considers dramatizations of the famous premiere, including the 1999 film, Cradle Will Rock, directed by Tim Robbins.

Keywords:   The Cradle Will Rock, Federal Theatre Project, Orson Welles, John Houseman, Leonard Bernstein, Tim Robbins
