Jewish Themes in Solo Show at BIFF

Annette Roman, writer and solo performer from Berkeley, California/Newton, Massachusetts/Budapest, Hungary/Königsberg, East Prussia (now Kaliningrad, Russia), will present her solo show “Hitler’s Li’l Abomination“, performed as part of the seventh annual Boulder International Fringe Festival, August 17 through 28, 2011.

Spanning three cultures and as many generations, this solo show features the Russian Front, Holocaust bedtime stories, and undercover Bridge games at the Senior Center. A unique, irreverent, humorous true story of one legacy of war and ethnic conflict from the daughter of a Jewish Holocaust survivor father and a mother who was in the Hitler Youth.

Remaining performances at Wesley Chapel, 1290 Folsom St, Boulder:

  • Tuesday, Aug 23 @ 9:00 pm
  • Thursday, Aug 25 @ 8:30 pm
  • Friday, Aug 26 @ 7:30 pm
  • Saturday, Aug 27 @ 4:00 pm

Tickets ($8.00) available at the door. Advance tickets available through the Boulder Fringe Website at www.BoulderFringe.com.

Sample review from Rollo W:

Great! I saw this show in San Francisco recently, but it’s even better here at the Boulder Fringe! Very well written and charmingly performed. Annette Roman’s family history is a karmic bagel-schnitzel of Truth, way stranger than fiction. (You just can’t make this stuff up!) Don’t be put off by the swastikas. This show is unexpected and thought-provoking. Truly a Fringe “main course” with lots to chew on.”

They call me "NewsHound Too," because I'm sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. My buddies know me as "Rocky." I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
