This chapter focusses on Blitzstein’s Reuben Reuben, his major theatrical undertaking from his later years. A modern Faust story touching on fears related to nuclear war, this opera, produced by Cheryl Crawford, directed by Robert Lewis, and starring Eddie Albert, Evelyn Lear, and Kay Ballard, closed out-of-town in Boston. The composer managed to salvage some of the music for his choral oratorio, This Is the Garden, which itself enjoyed only modest success.
