Bohemians in Brooklyn is something between cabaret, storytelling, chamber music and musical theatre. It tells the story of the remarkable collection of artists that lived together at 7 Middagh Street in Brooklyn, New York from 1939 until the building’s demolition in 1945. Among them were: the poet WH Auden; composer Benjamin Britten and his life¬ partner the tenor Peter Pears; the southern writer Carson McCullers; the burlesque star turned author Gypsy Rose Lee; composer and author Paul Bowles and his wife, the author Jane Bowles; composer, musicologist and writer Colin McPhee and the novelist and editor, the unsung hero of the enterprise, George Davis.
