Delray Beach Playhouse to Present Award-Winning, Off Broadway Play WIESENTHAL (NAZI HUNTER)
The Delray Beach Playhouse announces the nationally touring production of WIESENTHAL (NAZI HUNTER) will be in Delray Beach December 27th through the 29th.
Written by and starring Tom Dugan, the Off Broadway, award winning production tells the riveting, true story of an ordinary man who did extraordinary things. Holocaust survivor, Simon Wiesenthal, was soon known to the world as the "Jewish James Bond," dedicating his amazing life to bringing over 1100 Nazi War Criminals to justice, including aiding in the capture of Adolph Eichmann. Produced by Jay Kholos and directed by Jenny Sullivan, the play is intelligent, funny, flawed and noble; Wiesenthal was a universal hero. His dedication and tenacity over decades is honored in this play, which gives equal weight to his wisdom and wit during his long, purposeful life. The Huffington Post hailed it "HEARTFELT & DEEPLY MOVING. With humor and a hopeful note, Tom Dugan's 90-minute play makes history come alive!"
Show times are Friday, December 27th at 2 and 8 p.m.; Saturday, December 28th at 2 & 8 p.m. and Sunday, December 29th at 2 p.m. The Delray Beach Playhouse is located at 950 Lake Shore Drive, Delray Beach 33444.
