THE TINY MUSTACHE
Music & Lyrics by Eliot Bailen
Book by Steven Fialkoff

Set in a transitional concentration camp during World War II, a group of young theatre artists prepare for a special performance of a children's opera for the visiting Red Cross in an orchestrated attempt by the Nazis to disguise the atrocities of the Third Reich.
The Tiny Mustache had a five-week workshop rehearsal period with a performance on November 7, 2014 at Congregation Rodeph Sholom in New York City.
