I reviewed Hannah last Saturday (look on the REVIEWS page) and cannot recommend it highly enough. Only 2 more weekends to see this play:

Here's what the critics are saying about Premiere Stages’ Hannah:

"So powerful a drama that, from the beginning to its conclusion, Sunday afternoon's audience seemed stunned and pinned to its seats, reluctant to leave."—Bea Smith, Worral Newspapers

"Impressive Portrait...Hannah is a role model for all of us."—Ruth Ross, NJ Arts Maven

"Dramatically compelling...Hannah can not help but remind us how so often in the midst of the most horrific events and times, there will be those who will step up and perform the kind of incredible acts of courage that will inspire a nation."—Simon Saltzman, Curtain Up

A fine example of historical fiction...enlightening, educational and entertaining..."—Susan Doughterty, The Westfield Leader

Hannah by John Wooten

By John Wooten
Directed by Adam Immerwahr

Based on actual events, Hannah tells the story of freedom fighter and poet Hannah Senesh,who parachuted behind enemy lines during World War II to help Jews escape from Nazi-occupied Hungary. The play is a moving and powerful portrayal of a young woman's fearless commitment to making the world a better place.
