“The Rothschilds” at East Brunswick Community Players

“The Rothschilds”
Music by Jerry Bock
Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick
Book by Sherman Yellen

Europe's most famous rags-to-riches story is the subject of this extraordinary musical epic. Shrewd, charsimatic, resourceful and ambitious, Mayer Rothschild and his five sons struggle to overcome the prejudice of late eighteenth century European society as they build a family business which takes them from the Jewish ghetto to the courts of the rich and powerful nobility. On the way, they come to dominate European finance, help fund Napolean's defeat, and secure a Declaration of Rights for their people from the Crowned Heads of State.
