The Foundation has prepared sourcebooks on five of Weill's major stage works:
The books include information about genesis, the premiere performance, and reception history. They cover the premiere of each work in detail, with reference to commentary and correspondence by the authors and members of the production team, and to contemporary reviews. The sourcebooks also note subsequent major productions, recordings, and adaptations, reprinting reviews, program notes, etc. Each sourcebook is extensively illustrated in black and white.
