"Weill's first new venture of the postwar years was a boldly conceived 'American opera' for Broadway based on Elmer Rice's prize-winning drama Street Scene (1946). Though only moderately successful at the time, Street Scene marked, in Weill's widely publicized view, a culmination in his career as a theatre composer.".[Street Scene is] now regarded as one of the central achievements of [Weill's] American career."
