Coming Soon: KING OF HEARTS IF OFF AGAIN

The Jewish Voice takes a look at the upcoming production of THE KING OF HEARTS IS OFF AGAIN coming to The First Floor Theater @ La MaMa:


"The play is the real-life story of a Jewish woman, Izolda Regenberg, who set out to save her husband from the Warsaw Ghetto and Auschwitz by disguising herself and living as an Aryan. She succeeded. The story of their survival—through bribery, terror, rapes, escapes from death camps, prostitution and more—is staged with four actors playing 22 parts. Facing unimaginable situations, love becomes Izolda's sole means of survival as her own identity becomes obsolete. Her epic journey between 1943 and 1968 is told through a patchwork of scenes, with compact dialogue that is translated in supertitles. The production employs dance-like movement that is often tempestuous, ritualistic, and so expressive that the supertitles often seem superfluous."
