Growing up is hard enough -- imagine trying to come of age as an American citizen trapped in Nazi Germany during World War II. That was the real-life situation of Eleanor Ramrath Garner, whose acclaimed autobiography gets a riveting stage adaptation in this one-woman show from Theater LaB Houston. Eleanor's Story: An American Girl in Hitler's Germany traces Eleanor's path from the U.S. to Germany, where her family moved in pursuit of work during the Depression. But when war breaks out, they're unable to return home and instead endure hunger, fascist oppression and bombings in Berlin. Desperately hoping for an Allied victory, Eleanor must first survive the Nazis ... and then the terrors of the Soviet occupancy. Experience this powerful and inspiring story at Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston.
