Cassandra—that mythic figure from Greek legend, cursed with prophecies that nobody believes—knows she is soon to die. She locks herself in a studio to record an album of songs entitled This World, hoping to leave a time capsule of truths about the state of the world that might one day be heard. How to tell the truth in a way that compels people not only to listen and sing along, but to make the changes they haven’t? Featuring songs by Berkeley native, Malvina Reynolds, 'The Cassandra Sessions: Recording This World' is a new theater piece about making meaning of the world by making music about it.
