EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED Theater J, Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater
EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED By Simon Block Adapted from the book by Jonathan Safran Foer Directed by Aaron Posner January 11-February 4, 2018
on the best-selling novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, this stunning and
hilarious stage adaptation tells the story of a young man — also named
Jonathan Safran Foer — who sets out to find the woman who might or might
not have saved his grandfather. Accompanied by an old man haunted by
memories of the war, an amorous dog named Sammy Davis, Jr. Jr., and a
young Ukrainian translator who speaks in a sublimely butchered English,
Jonathan takes a quixotic journey into an unexpected past, where reality
collides with fiction in a heart-stopping scene of extraordinary power.
A highly anticipated East Coast premiere.
“A thoughtful, nuanced piece of theater that takes a familiar theme and makes it at once strange and familiar.” —Chicago Tribune
