L.A. Theatre Works

Judgment at Nuremberg by Abby Mann
Tuesday, April 18, 2017 - 8:00pm

L.A. Theatre Works has been the foremost radio theater company in the United States for more than two decades. Its unique live radio theater-style performances, where a first-rate cast performs on stage with scripts in hand, and a Foley artist creates sound effects, are immediate, spontaneous and create a connection to the audience rarely felt in a traditional theater setting. One of the great courtroom dramas of the last century, Judgment at Nuremberg became an Academy Award-winning film and a stage play that is both surprising and unsettling. This cast of unforgettable characters play out their high-stakes game against the backdrop of a looming Cold War, shifting political alliances and the shocking and vivid memories of the Holocaust and World War II.
