Interview Access to Ed Asner and Tovah Feldshuh

 

The Florida Holocaust Museum would like to offer you an opportunity to schedule a phone interview with Ed Asner and/or Tovah Feldshuh, as they have graciously agreed to speak with the media prior to The FHM's live dramatic reading of The Soap Myth on April 15th in Tampa and April 16th in Sarasota. 


The FHM, along with The Tampa JCCs & Federation and the Sarasota Opera House, are thrilled to present The Soap Myth on Monday, April 15 at the Bryan Glazer Family JCC in Tampa and on Tuesday, April 16 at the Sarasota Opera House. The Soap Myth stars Ed Asner Tovah Feldshuh, Ned Eisenberg, and Liba Vaynberg in the live dramatic readings of Jeff Cohen's play, directed by Pam Berlin.

 

The Soap Myth takes place more than a half century after the end of WWII when a young journalist sets out to write an article about a cantankerous Holocaust Survivor and his crusade regarding the Nazi atrocity of soap.

 

The Soap Myth dramatizes the friendship that develops between a young Jewish journalist (Annie Blumberg) and a cantankerous Holocaust Survivor (Milton Saltzman) on a crusade about including "soap" in Holocaust museums - Did the Nazis make soap from the corpses of murdered Jews?  Along the way the play grapples with the pernicious evil of antisemitism masquerading as Holocaust denial. The play tackles such timely and provocative themes as how a survivor survives surviving, who has the right to write history and how do we determine the truth.

 

 

Please email kwright@thefhm.org as soon as possible if you would like to request an interview.
