Rothschild & Sons, a more intimate, one-act retelling, features several songs not included in the original, with new lyrics by Harnick. Composer Bock passed away in 2010. A story of human rights and triumph, the new work focuses on the relationships between the patriarch of the family, Mayer Rothschild, played by Cuccioli, his wife Gutele, played by Crampton, and their five sons, living as Jews in a German ghetto.
