Why We Laugh - A Terezin Cabaret
Open Eye Figure Theatre
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:

By Kira Obolensky
Music by Craig Harris
Original cabaret by Felix Porges, Vítězslav Horpatzky, Pavel Weisskopf and Pavel Stránský; English translation & dramaturgy by Lisa Peschel
Directed by Hayley Finn
Produced 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.

Pay What You Can tickets will be available at the door only on Thursday, September 17th and Thursday, Sept 24th.

PLEASE NOTE: If ticket sales have already ended for the same day you are hoping to attend, there may still be some tickets available at the door. The Open Eye Theatre Box Office opens 1/2 hour before the show begins.
