Musical homage to the IB

March 7, 2011

Goodbye Barcelona, a musical by Karl Lewkowicz and Judith Johnson about the International Brigades,  is scheduled to open for a four-week run in London in November. A fund-raising reading of songs from the show was held in London on Friday 4 March;  speakers included historian Paul Preston, novelist Victoria Hislop and Lola Ruiz Sergueyeva, granddaughter of La Pasionaria. Spanish Television dedicated a short segment to the event, which was also reviewed by the London Times (subscription only). More about the musical here.
