The new play Here There Are Blueberries opens tonight, May 13. The co-production with the Tectonic Theater Project is directed by the play's conceiver and co-writer Moisés Kaufman. The show has just been extended to June 16.

Here There Are Blueberries was also just named a finalist for the 2024 Pulitzer Prize. The work explores an album of never-before-seen World War II-era photographs found on the desk of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum archivist Rebecca Erbelding, and the shocking story of true events behind them intersecting with the Holocaust and the lives of Nazi descendants. 

The cast includes Scott Barrow, Nemuna Ceesay, Tony Award nominee Kathleen Chalfant, Noah Keyishian, Jonathan Raviv, Erika Rose, Anna Shafer, Elizabeth Stahlmann, Charlie Thurston, and Grant Varjas.

Conceived and directed by Kaufman, Here There Are Blueberries was co-authored by Kaufman and Amanda Gronich, and devised with Scott Barrow, Amy Marie Seidel, Frances Uku, Grant James Varjas, and members of Tectonic Theatre Project. See new production photos below.
