Love of music vs. hateful ideology: Video of a sample scene from Mendelssohn Does Not Live Here Anymore
 
At left, a video of a staged reading of an excerpt from a scene from my new play Mendelssohn Does Not Live Here Anymore, presented as part of the Playwrights's Forum at the conference for the Association for Jewish Theatre, May, 19, 2008.  The reading was directed by Rick Stein, featured Mira Hirsch as Gritt and Ralph Meranto as Alf, and was videotaped by David Kahn at the Jewish Ensemble Theatre, Detroit, MI.
 
Although this reading was preceded by only two short rehearsals, the performance speaks highly for the director and two actors.

Excerpts from Metronome Ticking
will become available later this year 
 
Metronome Ticking, a docudrama about the Third Reich and the Holocaust, is based on the memoirs of Lily Spitz, whose husband was deported to the concentration camps of Dachau and Buchenwald, and the uncensored letters of Ernst-Alfred Eger from Occupied France during WWII, where he was serving as a war correspondent and propaganda officer. 
 
Excerpts, with Bob Spitz (son of Lily Spitz) and Henrik Eger (son of Alf Eger), will be filmed on Nov. 9, 2008 at an upcoming performances in Hamburg, Germany, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Reichspogromnacht of Nov. 9, 1938.
