Why We Laugh - A Terezin Cabaret


  • Open Eye Figure Theatre

Presented by Fortune's Fool Theatre

In this new adaptation of a cabaret written and performed in 1944 in the Jewish Ghetto at Terezín, characters based on the original Terezín performers encounter "the scholar" from our present. As the performers look forward to the postwar future and the scholar looks back toward their past, we discover why the Terezín prisoners laughed, and what that laughter means to us today. Featuring Julie Kurtz, Elise Langer, Ryan Lindberg, and Skyler Nowinski. More info and tickets
