Ben Liebert (former Boq – 1st Ntl. Tour, Broadway) has been cast in an invite-only reading of the WWII musical BY WHEEL AND BY WIND.
According to press notes, the show “relates the struggle of the Parnes family who lived on the Polish-Ukraine border at the outbreak of World War II. Through luck, coincidence and the family’s insistence on staying together, they found themselves traveling always eastward. Although the Jewish family remained only a few days ahead of the Nazi invasion, they were never caught or imprisoned, and survived, family intact, at the end of the war.”
The reading will be held at 6pm on November 3, 2014 in the Edmond J. Safra Hall of the Museum of Jewish Heritage at 36 Battery Place.
