A one-man show, this  is the inspiring true story of Simon Wiesenthal filled with hope, humanity, and humor.

Sometimes referred to as the “Jewish James Bond,” he devoted his life to bringing more than 1,000 Nazi war criminals to justice. Intelligent, funny, flawed, and noble, Wiesenthal was a true universal hero. His unbelievable dedication and tenacity over decades is honored in this play, which gives equal weight to his wisdom and wit during his long, purposeful life. The show is performed by Tom Dugan, in partnership with the Virginia Stage Company.

The lead sponsor of the event is Bank of America. Cooper-Hurley is sponsoring the dessert reception.

Presented as a fundraiser for the Holocaust Commission of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, proceeds will go in part to fund a matinee the following day for students from around Tidewater. To purchase tickets, visit vastage.org.
