Event description

Description

See BJ member and two-time Emmy Award and four-time Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh star with seven-time Emmy Award and five-time Golden Globe Award winner Ed Asner in a concert reading of Jeff Cohen’s play The Soap Myth.

The reading, directed by Pam Berlin, will serve as a tribute to International Holocaust Remembrance Day and Yom HaShoah. Also included in the cast are Ned Eisenberg and Liba Vaynberg.

The play is 90 minutes with no intermission, followed by a Q & A.

Online ticket sales: $18 for BJ members, $25 for non-members
At the door: $35

The play dramatizes the friendship that develops between a young Jewish journalist (Annie Blumberg) and a cantankerous Holocaust survivor (Milton Saltzman) and poses the question of whether the Nazis made soap from the bodies of murdered Jews. The play tackles such provocative themes as how a survivor survives surviving and who has the right to write history.

The Soap Myth was originally produced Off-Broadway at the Roundabout Theater in 2012 by the National Jewish Theater Foundation. A film of that production was broadcast nationally on PBS and is in the permanent collection of Britain’s Digital Theatre. For a preview of Mr. Asner’s performance (alongside two-time Tony Award nominee Johanna Day in 2018), watch the trailer.
