World premiere production, starring Tovah Feldshuh as Yussel the Muscle; written/directed by David Feldshuh.
This story of a remarkable friendship that survives in a dangerous world is a cautionary tale inspired by actual events. Just before World War II, three very different men – New York wheeler-dealer boxing manager Joe “Yussel the Muscle” Jacobs, German boxing champion Max Schmeling and American World Champion Boxing Great Joe Louis – form an astonishing bond. For this friendship to survive, they must battle the ruthless manipulation of the truth by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Minster of Propaganda and Enlightenment. This riveting and highly entertaining theatrical adventure will be both humorous and moving.
