Theater of War

Synopsis
From research to rehearsal to opening night in 2006, THEATER OF WAR offers a rare, behind-the-scenes look at how leading actors prepare for their roles. As Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Tony Kushner, and Public Theater director George C. Wolfe work to breathe new life into Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage and Her Children, we learn something new about the playwright’s life, politics, and the original masterpiece’s premiere in war-torn Berlin in 1949. Includes commentary by Michael Moore.
