Now Extended — Everything Is Illuminated

“RIVETING…MASTERFUL…THE JOURNEY AND THE PAYOFF ARE HUGE.” — BROADWAY WORLD

Based on the best-selling, critically acclaimed novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, this stunning stage adaptation tells the story of a young Jewish-American writer (also named Jonathan Safran Foer) who sets out for Ukraine to find the woman who he believes saved his grandfather from the Nazis, and the town they wiped off the map. Jonathan’s tour guides are a pair of flamboyant Ukrainians, a grandfather and grandson with limited English skills and secrets of their own. As they travel into the unknown, along with the dog Sammy Davis Jr., Jr., they meet increasingly surreal characters, both fictional and real, as the past and present merge into an unforgettable journey.

What makes the theater stage so applicable to adaptations, regardless of these limitations, is the close relationship between the audience and what is happening on stage. In the case of small theater, the audience may be in the middle of the action at times.
