You may remember back in April, Aaron Rossini directed a production of Jon Kovach's one-man show The Wave in SAG Habor at the Bay Street Theater. Now the production is coming to the Big City for one night only at The Tank. We'll see you there!

A Little About The Show
Based on a true story, a young 1967 history teacher dealing with The Vietnam War and integration into the public school system, tries to deter his students from fascism through a social experiment that spirals out of his control. Individual freedoms are abandoned and repressed for collective goals as happened in the rise of Nazi Germany and the treatment of the Jews during World War II.
Following the performance, Mark Hancock, an original Wave participant in 1967, will be in attendance for a Q&A.
You may be familiar with Todd Strasser's novel, or Norman Leer's 1981 after-school special, that share the same title. Our production is unique, being co-authored by the teacher who experienced the actual event in 1967, Ron Jones. If you or anyone you know is wondering why we're still dealing with Nazi's, this story shows a few reasons.
