DEAR BERLIN: A Musical Breakthrough
Fort Lauderdale, Florida Teen Session One (2013)
On May 13th, 1961 the citizens of Berlin woke up to a city divided in two: West Berlin, controlled by the allied nations and East Berlin, which remained under communist rule, leaving East Berliners trapped inside their city. Once it became clear that the wall wasn’t temporary, the citizens of Berlin became desperate to reunite with their loved ones. Inspired by true stories, Dear Berlin, A Musical Breakthrough follows three generations of extraordinary people as they attempt to get under, over and finally, through the wall.
Written by the students and staff of The Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts June 2013 Teen Session One.
