WIESENTHAL

AN ORDINARY MAN WHO DID EXTRAORDINARY THINGS

April 25 to 30, 2017

Written By & Starring Tom Dugan | Directed by Jenny Sullivan

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, awed and noble, Wiesenthal was a 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.
