Everything is Illuminated
By Simon Block
Adapted from the book by Jonathan Safran Foer Directed by Aaron Posner January 11-February 4, 2018
Based 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.
