Theater for the New City Crystal Field, Executive Artistic Director presents ARENDT-HEIDEGGER: A LOVE STORY
by Douglas Lackey directed by Alexander Harrington.
Check theater for showtimes.
Martin Heidegger and Hannah Arendt were leading intellectuals of the twentieth century. In the 1920s, they had a passionate affair. In the 1930s, Heidegger became an ardent Nazi while Arendt, a Jew, moved to America. Nevertheless, after the war, they still continued to correspond and to meet. Douglas Lackey dramatizes their relationship. The dialogue and action of the play go beyond known facts, but everything in the play is consistent with them.
