    100 boys create the Holocaust’s ​longest-running underground magazine. The Nazis set out to burn it, but the last boy left plans to save it.

    About this event

    The Last Boy…a new play with music is a theatrical experience like no other, immersing the audience in a world created entirely by boys. The show is inspired by the remarkable story of 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Sidney Taussig and his roommates in Theresienstadt, who created Vedem magazine. It would become the longest-running underground publication of World War II. Threaded throughout the play are the boys’ breathtaking poems – fitting, given Town Hall’s place in history as the venue that sparked America’s love affair with poetry. The Last Boy was NYC’s first post-pandemic world premiere, running Off-Broadway to sold-out houses and raves. This special, one-night-only event commemorates Yom HaShoah, the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day. The one-act, 90-minute show features a cast of boys who will break, mend and win your heart. The 6:00 pm performance will end at sundown, culminating in 100 young people rising throughout the venue to pay tribute to Vedem’s young poets – most of whom did not survive. But with The Last Boy, their legacy lives on. Don’t miss out on what is sure to be an unforgettably moving evening that is guaranteed to fill you with hope.
