An Intimate Tale of Power, Love and Loss
A new rock musical conceived and written by Peter Galperin, with a book by Galperin and Daniel Scot Kadin, BLDZR dramatizes Master Builder Robert Moses’ evolution from a young idealist fervent with a desire to build the greatest city in the world to a power-insulated enemy of the people, corrupted, lost and alone.
Combining the sonic power of Green Day’s “American Idiot” with the human drama of Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane”, BLDZR is a staggering story of fantastic accomplishment and personal defeat intertwining intimate themes of love and loss with the great social issues that gripped the 20th century urban environment.
From boardrooms to bedrooms, from expansive aerial views to the gritty sidewalks of the city, BLDZR charts the rise and fall of one man, the young woman who loved him, and the great human toll that was paid to build the city we live in today.
