WINNIPEG, November 10, 2015 – The riveting true story of an ordinary man who dedicated his life to one extraordinary mission comes to the stage in WIESENTHAL, Tom Dugan’s award-winning play that explores the life and work of dedicated Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal.

 

Nicknamed the “Jewish James Bond,” Simon Wiesenthal devoted his life to bringing more than 1,100 Nazi war criminals to justice. Intelligent, funny, flawed 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.

 

In addition to Director Jenny Sullivan, the creative team behind the production includes Set Designer Beowulf Boritt, Costume Designer Alex Jaeger, Lighting Designer Joel E. Silver, Sound Designer Shane Rettig, Production Stage Manager Katherine Barrett, Production Manager Mind the Gap, Inc., Tour General Management DR Theatrical Management, Tour Brand Management DR Advertising and Associate Producers David Bryant and Jeff Rosen.
