Wallenberg, an epic musical, tells the inspiring story of o¬ne of the greatest heroes of the 20th century. This one man's unconventional acts of bravery saved the lives of over 100,000 people during World War II. Between face-offs with the notorious Nazi colonel, Adolf Eichmann, and secret dealings with Baroness Elisabeth Kemény, the wife of one of Hungary's most prominent fascist leaders, Wallenberg was able to accomplish more in six months than most people do in a lifetime. When the war ended, Raoul Wallenberg was abducted by the Russians, never to be seen again.

Wallenberg has a book and lyrics by the 2006 Kleban Award-winning team of Laurence Holzman & Felicia Needleman and a score by Benjamin Rosenbluth.
