Hannah Senesh with NYTF Off-Broadway
Lexi is thrilled to be making her Off-Broadway debut this summer in a Drama Desk Award nominated, one-woman play with music! She will have the honor to reverently tell the true story of Hannah Senesh, the heroic young Jewish woman who escaped from Axis-allied Hungary in 1939 to the safety of British Mandate Palestine. There she bravely volunteered for a daring Special Operations mission to parachute back into Europe to save Jews from the approaching Holocaust. Hannah's story and indomitable spirit serve as an enduring inspiration to people everywhere standing up to the powers of hatred and oppression. Hannah Senesh, written and directed by David Schechter and produced with the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, will tell her story through her real diary entries and poetry, occasionally set to music composed by Steven Lutvak.
