Read Synopsis

Leipzig, Germany, 1722: seven rival musicians jump at the chance to fill the most sought-after musical post in Europe: organmaster at Leipzig. Inspired by actual events, emerging playwright Itamar Moses has crafted a hilarious fugue of schemes and mayhem as each musician deliciously blackmails, bribes, and double-crosses to win the position. When Bach at Leipzig played at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater last season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said, “Imagine the Marx Brothers and Tom Stoppard collaborating on a play.”
