Photo Flash: WIESENTHAL Opens Tonight Off-Broadway
Daryl Roth (Kinky Boots, The Normal Heart) and Karyl Lynn Burns (The Best is Yet to Come) present the New York premiere of Wiesenthal, the award-winning play written by and starring Tom Dugan and directed by Jenny Sullivan. Wiesenthal is now playing at the Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row, (410 W. 42nd Street). Opening night is tonight, November 5. BroadwayWorld has a look at Dugan onstage below!
Filled with hope, humanity and humor, Wiesenthal is the riveting true story of Simon Wiesenthal, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things. Nicknamed the "Jewish James Bond," he devoted his life to bringing more than 1,100 Nazi war criminals to justice. Intelligent, funny, flawed and noble, Wiesenthal was a true universal hero. His unbelievable dedication and tenacity over decades is honored in this play, which gives equal weight to his wisdom and wit during his long, purposeful life.
Comprising the design team for Wiesenthal is Tony Award winning scenic designer Beowulf Boritt (Act One at Lincoln Center Theatre, On The Town on Broadway, Obie Award recipient for Sustained Excellence in Scenic Design),costume designer Alex Jaeger (Two Sisters and a PianoatThe Public Theatre, Venus in Fur at ACT), lighting designer Joel E. Silver (Blue Man Group in Berlin, Tokio Confidential at Atlantic Stage), and sound designer Shane Rettig (When January Feels Like Summer at Ensemble Studio Theatre, Mourning Becomes Electra at the Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row).
Wiesenthal plays at the Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row, (410 W. 42ndStreet). Opening night is tonight, November 5. Performances are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, with matinees Saturdays at 2pm and Sundays at 3pm.
