Wallenberg, the musical

The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation is proud to be one of the associate producers of the amazing Wallenberg musical.
With book and lyrics by the 2006 Kleban Award-winning team of Laurence Holzman & Felicia Needleman and music by Benjamin Rosenbluth Wallenberg conveys the same sense of hope and optimism that Wallenberg himself inspired. Wallenberg’s heroic efforts proved that one ordinary man can make an extraordinary difference. In light of the disheartening situation in our world today, this message – which lies at the heart of the musical – resonates deeply for all of us.

Presented at the White Plains Performing Arts Center in 2010, the acclaimed epic musical drama has a new producing team!

An exclusive invitation-only reading of the musical will be presented in Manhattan on November 18 & 19 to launch the show on its journey to Broadway. Anyone interested in helping to bring this important story to the stage, should contact Producer Douglas C. Evans for details about the presentation: InternationalCounsel@gmail.com.

In addition, the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation is accepting tax-deductible contributions of $50 or more, earmarked for the musical, to help make the production possible.
