Franco Moschetti, Playwright, Director and Actor on his play returning to Manhattan theater in January, 2014:

When Yellow Were The Stars On Earth
( )

A new WWII drama about the Holocaust by Franco Moschetti.  One night in Berlin, 1943, during an SS raid, a German Cabaret singer opens her door to save a Jewish Resistance fighter. As the hours unfold, destiny winds their lives more tightly together until there is no turning back. When Yellow Were the Stars on Earth tells a story of two rarely written about realities: Jewish female fighters and Germans who died refusing to be part of Nazi machinery. Amidst the atrocities of WWII, these women transcend enemy lines and, in their final moments, make an ultimate sacrifice for love.

The Cycles Of Change is revisiting this remarkable play as an example of how American cycles have re-entered a nostalgia period that will last well into the next decade.  As there is a time for looking forward and a time for looking back, the internal rhythms of the United States has brought us back into a restrospective period that will only increase as this decade progresses.  We have renewed our interest in the past, and this play is on the leading edge of this perspective.  Listen in for a view of us as we view ourselves in recent history.
