Dany Margolies - Backstage - Critic’s Pick

“A compact and solid chronicle…most eloquent”
Deborah Klugman –LA WEEKLY

“…his transformation into Wiesenthal is remarkable... his mannerisms, movements and accent… I highly recommend this production.”
Carol Kaufman Segal – Reviewplays.com

“His performance was as riveting as it was flawless… It should be mandatory for young and old – especially young – to see  'Wiesenthal' a brilliant tour de force by Simon….I mean, Tom Dugan.”
Jerry Cutler – The Beverly Hills Courier

“This is a magnificent play that needs to be seen by all young people who are studying the Holocaust. Books, films and documentaries are very informative but there is nothing as effective as a live theatrical presentation to help people understand the Holocaust and remember the important lessons that must be learned from it.”

Adair Kline
