Hoaxocaust! to run from May 29th to June 17th at the Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave, (9th St) New York City.
A theatrical experience in two acts, monologue and talk back session, probing the issues of cultural, ethnic and religious identity.
The performance allows you to situate yourself amidst the stereotypes and confusion of today's unfiltered news in an era of information overload.
Our timing could not be more spot-on.
HOAXOCAUST! is a shocking, irreverent examination of how "victims" are defined, how "truth" gets disseminated, and why, for all of us, politics are so stubbornly personal. Please join us as noted monologist Barry Levey asks daring questions about anti-Semitism and the reinterpretation of history. Is there such a thing as a contemporary Jewish identity independent of "The Holocaust"? Should there be? What if the Holocaust had never happened?
Veteran producers, David Milch, a child of Holocaust survivors, and Jonathan Pillot bring this production to life.
