Songs Without Words

Songs Without Words (or, The Mendelssohn Play)

Jennifer Vosters

Chicago, IL

Two geniuses + one actor = sibling dramedy with a classical twist.

Songs Without Words (or, The Mendelssohn Play) is the humorous, heartbreaking true story of one artistic soul inhabiting two very different artists. One actor brings composers Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn to life with a tour-de-force performance that wrestles gender and genius, family and fame, siblinghood and the power of art.
