Talking with Angels: Budapest 1943
Talking with Angels: Budapest 1943, one of San Francisco's most remarkable and critically acclaimed theatrical events of the last decade, returns to the city for 24 performances.  Talking with Angels is not a metaphor. It is an epic true story, about four young artists' search for meaning and survival during the Nazi occupation of Hungary.

Shelley Mitchell's elegantly adapted and brilliantly performed monodrama brings the true story of Gitta Mallasz, Hanna Dallos, Lili Strauss and Joseph Kreuitzer to life with impeccable grace.  The Bay Guardian called her performance "passionately mystical and remarkably lucid."  The LA Weekly said "Mitchell transforms into something between a dancer and a shaman".   After seeing Shelley Mitchell perform Talking with Angels, Sean Penn said "She's the real deal!"

"If it is relatively rare to come away from theater genuinely moved, it is even rarer to emerge from a play with a sense of having experienced a spiritual infusion. Yet that is the effect of this play and this performance. I can only hope that many other people are privileged to experience Shelley Mitchell making this happen for them." Dr.John Beebe, Jung Inst. S.F.
In 1960 the diaries of these four young Hungarian artists were smuggled into France by the only survivor of the group, Gitta Mallasz. They were first published in 1976 as Dialogue avec L'Ange and immediately became a European bestseller.  Notable fans of the book include Juliette Binoche, Julia Roberts and Wings of Desire director Wim Wenders. Shelley Mitchell's adaptation of the book into a play is based on the original diaries and extensive interviews with the book's publishers, Jungian analysts, Robert Hinshaw and Lela Fischli of Daimon Press, Switzerland.  

Talking with Angels: Budapest 1943 brings the story to life for 21st century audiences and is ideal entertainment for anyone on a spiritual journey.
