The Ben Hecht Show

FLORIDA PREMIER

Connie & David Blacher, Janet & Philip Dresden, Donald M. Ephraim Family Foundation

The fascinating life of Chicago newspaperman turned legendary playwright, Ben Hecht, is written and performed by James Sherman (Beau Jest). In this one-man show, Hecht (co-playwright of The Front Page) confronts his identity as an American Jew. “Journalist, playwright, screenwriter and a tireless advocate for the creation of a Jewish state in the Middle East — Sherman touches on nearly all of Hecht's astounding public life.” Chicago Tribune
