Starring in “Holocaust comedy” Muse of Fire

Muse of Fire - Georg Mugshot“Wicke is a haunting portrait of a man trying to find some last shred of dignity within the context of his own choices….”Chicago Theater Beat (Recommended, 3 Stars)

It’s Auschwitz, 1942. I play an actor who has coped with the horrors of the camp by writing a hilarious play in his head, and now he’s wrangling his fellow prisoners to act out his farce, which satirizes the anti-Semitic nonsense of the Dreyfus Affair. But as the play goes on, dark secrets emerge. The prisoners must ask themselves if comedy can truly have meaning in the face of horror.

Muse of Fire will run Feb 13 through Mar 13 at Redtwist Theatre: Saturdays at 3pm, Sundays at 7:30pm, Tuesdays at 7:30pm, Wednesdays at 7:30pm.
