The Soap Myth: A reading of the Jeff Cohen play in celebration of Holocaust Remembrance Day
Date and Time
May 2, 2016
The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center and Burke Cohen Entertainment present a reading of Jeff Cohen’s play The Soap Myth, featuring seven-time Emmy winner Ed Asner in the role of Holocaust survivor Milton Saltzman.
The Soap Myth takes place more than a half century after the end of WWII, when at the desperate urging of a passionate Holocaust survivor a young investigative reporter finds herself caught between numerous versions of the same story. The Soap Myth questions who has the right to record history - those who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort and desecrate its very existence.
The reading, which will be directed by Pam Berlin, is a tribute to Yom Ha Shoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, and is the flagship event of National Jewish Theater Foundation Remembrance Readings.
