not be a victim,

-Holocaust Historian Yehuda
Theatre is honored to once
again join forces with the New Phoenix Theatre on the Park to present
one of the quintessential tales of the struggle for justice.
on Holocaust Remembrance Day 2016, JUDGMENT
takes us back to post-war Germany for a front row seat at the original
trial of crimes against humanity. With an atrocity as immense and
unfathomable as the Holocaust, how do you begin to mete out justice? One
overwhelmed judge from the back roads of North Carolina has to find a way when
he accepts the role of Lead Justice for the Nuremberg Tribunals in 1948.
But as the Cold War heats up and alliances shift, he's about to find out just
how quickly American values can be twisted. Haunted by the victims, denounced
on all sides, torn between the cries of his nation and his conscience, can
he find a way to stand up for justice amidst a whirlwind of lies, denials, and
for the stage from the iconic 1961 Hollywood Film,
this epic drama still smolders with the rage of six million victims
fifty-five years later. Back in 1961, the Film was the first time many
people saw the Holocaust images that are now burned into the World's
conscience. Today, of course, discussion of the Holocaust is thankfully
much more wide spread. But JUDGMENT
still stands out with its unvarnished depiction of one man's quest for
justice in a time and place where justice seemed impossible. Part
courtroom drama, part history lesson, part psychological study, part political
discourse, this intensely human tragedy is sadly always relevant in our
World where "crimes against humanity" are by no means
a thing of the past.
"A nation isn't
a rock. It's what it stands for when
standing for something is the most difficult."
Film of JUDGMENT
was famous for its star studded cast that featured Spencer Tracy, Marlene
Dietrich, Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Clift, Maximilian Schell, Judy Garland,
Richard Widmark, and even a very young William Shatner. Our Buffalo
rendition is blessed with a talented team of Buffalo thespians including David
Mitchell, Ray Boucher, Adam Yellen, Lisa Ludwig, Richard Lambert+, John
Profeta*, Tim Joyce*, Jack Agugliaro*, J. Tim Raymond*, Joy Scime*, Tom
Scahill*, Hasheen DeBerry*, John Kennedy*, Michael O'Hear, Rick Lattimer*,
Jess Abel, Emily McCormick, Mark Bogumil, and Michael Mottern*.

few years, Subversive Theatre joins forces with New Phoenix to present another
of the quintessential stories of the struggle against injustice. For
almost a decade now our two companies have been coming together to present
epic plays that would be too daunting for either troupe to produce
single-handedly. JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG
is a touching addition to our partnership that spawned WAITING FOR LEFTY
(winner of the 2008 Artie Award for Outstanding Production), INHERIT THE
WIND (2011), and ON THE WATERFRONT (2013). Both troupes are
proud to see this collaboration continue to grow and spread.
