"The Cradle Will Rock" is a famous 1938 Theatre Guild musical by Marc Blitzstein about labor organizing. It was performed for a mere 34 performances though. A film version about the controversial creation of the show was released in the late 1990's with an all-star cast and some of the original songs. Note the many famous names in an early point in their career, with Cisco listed as Gil.

The Internet Theater Database lists this as Cisco's only Broadway appearance.
