The Here We Are musical is inspired by the films The Exterminating Angel (1962), about upper-class guests trapped at their own dinner party, and The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972), about a group of six friends whose dinner party plans keep getting derailed. Both are surrealist works that satirize aristocrats who hide dark secrets behind glamorous facades.
Buñuel, a Spanish Mexican director, has been called one of the most influential filmmakers in history, remembered for pioneering surrealism in film and delivering shocking, moving narratives.
It's only fitting that his films are adapted by one of the most influential composers in history: Sondheim, known for his layered and emotional storytelling through lyrics and music. Also on board is bookwriter David Ives, who adapted Buñuel's screenplays for the stage. Ives, too, is a playwriting great; his one-act comedies earned him the nickname "maestro of the short form."
