The Winning Side - 2018 - Off-Broadway

What are we willing to sacrifice to take “one giant leap for mankind”?

Based on the true story of Wernher von Braun, Chief Rocket Engineer of the Third Reich and one of the fathers of the U.S. space program, THE WINNING SIDE explores the hidden history behind America’s 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing.

As the preeminent face and voice of space exploration on television during the 1950’s and 60’s, von Braun was one of the most famous men in the world. But because of his complicated legacy, he’s largely been left out of the history books. With The Winning Side, Wallert creates an accessible theatrical experience that re-examines this forgotten figure of the space race, and asks challenging questions about our contemporary views of science, technology, politics, and ethics.
