"Abby Mann's classic story about the Nuremberg trials, under which German leaders were found guilty of crimes against humanity in 1945 and 1946. Even today, the play remains a shattering indictment of the consequences of unchecked authority and the seductive power of group thought. Includes an audience talkback with Judge Bruce Einhorn, who served at the Justice Department supervising litigation against Nazi war criminals and is currently a professor at Pepperdine University. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast production, starring Ryan Vincent Anderson, Michael Canavan, Jake Green, Harry Hamlin, Shannon Holt, Alan Mandell, James Morrison, David Selby, Kate Steele, Nick Toren, and John Vickery. Honorary Executive Producer, David Kavner. Special thanks to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios. Directed by Shannon Cochran and recorded before an audience by L.A. Theatre Works."

"Opening with the tone and energy of a 1940s newsreel, the narrator sets the stage: WWII is over, and the first trials of high-ranking Nazi officials have concluded, with 12 men sentenced to hang and seven others sentenced to life imprisonment. But what to do with the 177 generals, diplomats, doctors, and lawyers who helped carry out the Nazis' crimes against humanity? With a cast that includes talented newcomers (Ryan Vincent Anderson) and seasoned veterans (Harry Hamlin), L.A. Theatre Works presents this tense and absorbing fictionalized account of the subsequent tribunals, which lasted until 1949. The final scene between the American judge and a German defendant who asks for "understanding" remains penetrating and timeless: No man can be innocent who sends innocents to their graves. Powerful listening. B.P. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
