    Synopsis: 

    Maximilian Schell and George Grizzard star in Abby Mann’s Judgment at Nuremberg. This harrowing drama explores the trials of the Nazi judges for their direct influence in the horrendous war crimes after the end of World War II. These trials had far-reaching effects as they rejected the argument that orders from superiors relieve people from responsibility for war crimes. Directed by John Tillinger, the show also features Michael Hayden, Robert Foxworth, Marthe Keller, and Joseph Wieseman.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Judgment at Nuremberg

    On Evil and the Citizen, No Answers Are Easy

    Bruce Weber

    March 27, 2001: It's rare to walk out of a play and wish it had been longer. But Abby Mann's post-Holocaust drama, ''Judgment at Nuremberg,'' which opened on Broadway yesterday at the Longacre Theater, is a bit too brisk and trim for its own good. This is not to say that the show's two and a half hours fly by but rather that Mr. Mann's famous story about Nazi judges on trial before an American tribunal doesn't shrink comfortably to stage time and space. The play feels edited, nipped and tucked, in short, adapted.
