About the show

Theater for the New City presents this bleak satire from Hungarian émigré George Tabori about a young neo-Nazi's encounter in a graveyard. More…

In the rarely seen 'Jubilee.' a neo–Nazi youth hellbent on defacing Jewish headstones is visited by a Jewish family and a gay couple, who find deliciously sinister ways to goad the miscreant to move on. 'Jubilee' is part of 'Two by Tabori' and is running in repertory with 'Mein Kampf.'

The result is a black comedy in which the comedy is sorely lacking...Everything it ...

"This play is a scathing rebuke of any sympathy for the type of behavior that led to the deaths of so many in Nazi Germany. 'Jubilee' revolves around Juergen's visits to a Jewish graveyard where the victims of his hate lie buried. As discrimination grows, do we just stand by until an outright act...
