Among the most creative and outsized personalities of the Weimar Republic, that sizzling yet decadent epoch between the Great War and the Nazis' rise to power, were the renegade poet Bertolt Brecht and the rebellious avant-garde composer Kurt Weill. These two young geniuses and the three women vital to their work-actresses Lotte Lenya and Helene Weigel and writer Elizabeth Hauptmann-joined talents to create the theatrical and musical masterworks The Threepenny Opera and The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, only to split in rancor as their culture cracked open and their aesthetic and…mehr
Among the most creative and outsized personalities of the Weimar Republic, that sizzling yet decadent epoch between the Great War and the Nazis' rise to power, were the renegade poet Bertolt Brecht and the rebellious avant-garde composer Kurt Weill. These two young geniuses and the three women vital to their work-actresses Lotte Lenya and Helene Weigel and writer Elizabeth Hauptmann-joined talents to create the theatrical and musical masterworks The Threepenny Opera and The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, only to split in rancor as their culture cracked open and their aesthetic and temperamental differences became irreconcilable. The Partnership is the first book to tell the full story of Brecht and Weill's impulsive, combustible partnership, the compelling psychological drama of one of the most important creative collaborations of the past century. It is also the first book to give full credit where it is richly due to the three women whose creative gifts contributed enormously to their masterworks. And it tells the thrilling and iconic story of artistic daring entwined with sexual freedom during the Weimar Republic's most fevered years, a time when art and politics and society were inextricably mixed.

Praise for The Partnership : "Katz's account is readable, engaging and fair-minded... The strength of The Partnership resides in how vividly it re-creates not just these remarkable men but also the women who contributed so mightily to their reputations." -Julia M. Klein, Los Angeles Times "Bright, brisk... [Katz's] work as a novelist and screenwriter helps her keep the pacing swift and the prose dynamic-the chapters on the creation of 'The Threepenny Opera' are almost unbearably suspenseful... she offers a real and empathetic sense of how Brecht and Weill walked and spoke and dressed." -Alexis Soloski, The New York Times "Katz restores the women to their proper place in the story, with levity, strong characterization, and beguiling descriptions of an interwar German milieu crackling with politics, art, and a sense of possibility." -The New Yorker "The culture of Weimar Germany is at its most provocative and profound in this scintillating portrait of its leading theatrical luminaries.... Katz gives an uproarious view of the ferment of interwar Berlin's theatrical avant-garde, with Brecht's tantrums, power plays, preening demands, and ideological conceits. But she also takes seriously the artistic and political ideas that drove Brecht and Weill to their innovations (and eventually estranged them). The result is a thoughtful, entertaining recreation of a watershed moment in 20th-century theater." -Publishers Weekly "...Deft, incisive cultural history... With a novelist's eye for telling details, Katz offers a colorful, perceptive and riveting portrait of a remarkable artistic partnership." - Kirkus Reviews " The Partnership is a remarkable and thrilling account of two artists making history, and being made by history. It follows in intimate detail one of the most fruitful collaborations of twentieth-century performance, that of Bert Brecht and Kurt Weill. It is also a thrilling perspective on the explosive last years of the Weimar Republic and the Nazi rise to power. Pamela Katz writes with extraordinary insight into the women who made these men possible; she restores them to the position they earned in life: neither victims nor objects, but fiercely talented creators and individuals. She is an artist, and she writes with an artist's grace and human insight. Her evocation of the titanic struggles of two brilliant theatrical figures, each with enormous self-assurance, is captivating." -Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director, The Public Theater…mehr
