The songs are not used in the standard juke box style, shoehorned into a text to use lyrics written in another context to serve a story. Rather, and they’re tied to the radio broadcast conceit carefully laid out in the libretto, they’re existential survival tools for characters who need music’s mystery to help them cope with life’s vicissitudes. The words sometime match circumstance but often amplify ineffable feelings. Literal plot specific parallels aren’t the goal. The emotion accessed and generated in performance helps characters find comfort, release pain, express joy. The show is a paean to the power of timeless music, its ability to lift and support in intolerable moments.
