Who is this Brecht guy, anyway?

Isn't that a great photo? It's Bertolt Brecht, playwright, poet, political fire-starter, and ladies' man. That's right, ladies' man.

Though he married Helene Weigel, the leading lady in many of his plays, he didn't, shall we say, limit himself in the world of romance.

Read a little more about Brecht here. Our dramaturg for the production, grad student and research scholar Carrie Chapter, will post some of her copious research here soon. Some of the stories she's come up with are pretty great.
