In November 2005, Berkeley Rep presented the musical fable Brundibar, which was adapted by Tony Kushner and featured a stunning production design by Maurice Sendak, the celebrated children's author who passed away today. 

Artistic Director Tony Taccone says, "We were deeply saddened to hear today that Maurice Sendak had passed away. Maurice was an astonishing, brilliant, hysterical, ornery, loving, ferocious genius of a man.  Working with him on Brundibar was a great thrill for everyone involved. We are honored that we were able to play a part in his theatrical life and will cherish his memory forever."
