Description

Dancing With Giants
A play reading

starring

TOVAH FELDSHUH
Four-time Tony Award Nominee and Four-time Drama Desk Award Winner

Against the background of the rise of Hitler and Nazi Germany in the dangerous world of the 1930’s, Dancing With Giants explores and celebrates the survival of an incongruous and remarkable relationship of three very different men—Max Schmeling, the German boxing champion who was Hitler’s favorite boxer, Joe Louis, the American boxing champion, and Joe “Yussel the Muscle” Jacobs, an optimistic, wise-cracking, Jewish, New York boxing manager/promoter who represented Schmeling and is played by Tovah Feldshuh. All three were enemies of the powerful Nazi Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, who fiercely opposed and sought to destroy their friendship.

Dancing With Giants, written and directed by David Feldshuh, is a fictionalized account of a story inspired by true events.

Doors open at 6:15pm. Performance begins promptly at 7pm and will run for 100 minutes without intermission.

Note: Seating will be first come, first served. No refunds due to weather and/or cast substitution. Please contact Shelley Saunders (ssaunders@rodephshalom.org) with any questions.
