Writer and performer Tom Dugan—familiar from bit parts on Friends and Curb Your Enthusiasm —corralled three nominations from the L.A. Stage Alliance Ovation Awards, including Best Play and Best Leading Actor for his portrayal of the “Jewish James Bond” in his riveting, one-man performance about a Holocaust survivor’s relentless quest for justice. Pacing through his box-cluttered Vienna office on the day of his retirement, Simon fills in a group of off-screen American students on the tactical methods he used to hunt Adolf Eichmann, Franz Stangl, and Dr. Mengele, among other Nazi war criminals. He infuses his anecdotes with mordant wit and genuine warmth, laughing over being mistaken for Laurence Olivier (who played him in the film The Boys From Brazil) one moment, and making mournfully poetic observations the next, such as likening a sunflower to a periscope of the dead. As his memories wander from the Warsaw ghetto to Jerusalem, from death camps to the slums of Buenos Aires, he paints a gripping portrait of humanity’s unquenchable thirst for justice even in the face of utmost horror.

Nazi Hunter–Simon Wiesenthal upholds Rubicon’s dedication to producing provocative theater that celebrates the human spirit. The ensemble has embodied this mission through a diverse collection of shows populated with redemptive characters, from world premieres such as the folk-musical revue Lonesome Traveler to time-tested classics including Steel Magnolias and a developmental staged reading of The Tempest.
