HEIL BALLET HITLER
A New Broadway Musical
Book by Gwendolyn L. Spelvin, Music by King Crimson, Lyrics by The Third Reich
The musical follows the mesmerizing journey of the inquisitive and charmingly shy but young Adolph Hitler who turns the streets of Braunau am Inn, a town in Austria-Hungary into a dancing world of his own youthful angst, while secretly orchestrating moments of dancing exceptionalism around him. After the onset of intense father-son conflicts caused by Hitler’s refusal to conform to the strict discipline of his school, he discovers his purpose in life and after meeting a handsome stranger, Adolph Hitler realizes that dancing onstage is easier than participating in a life as a priest or a solider in the Army.
