I sraeli Play Portrays Herzl's Life
NEW YORK—The New York
premiere , of a multi-media Israeli
play about Theodor Herzl, the
founder of Modern Zionism, will
be staged at 92nd Street YM-
YWHA in New York City this
fall and then will be sent on tour
throughout the U.S. by the lec-
ture bureau of the National Jew-
ish Welfare Board.
"The Man Behind the Legend"
by Yaacov Orland, playwright and
artistic consultant of the Haifa
Theater, is based on the diaries
and autobiography of Dr. Herzl,
who was called "the dreamer of a
Martin Bard, who portrays Herzl,
was with the Tyrone Guthrie The-
ater in Minneapolis as a Ford
Foundation grantee, directed sev-
eral off-Broadway plays, and
worked with the Harlem Education
Program and other organizations
as a special consultant in utilizing
the arts to overcome barriers of
communication between groups of
The play uses photographic
slides and motion picture film
clips thrown on screens behind the
performer to illustrate scenes in
Israel showing the realities which
bear out Herzl's amazingly accu-
rate predictions. Tape-recorded
background sounds enhance the
realism of the action.
The chief aim of the play, ac-
cording to the author, is "to reveal
the true image of Herzl as a man
in contradistinction to the legen-
dary image which has grown up."
After the play's appearance at
the New York Y on Oct. 24, it will
be staged by the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America in Teaneck, N.J.,
on Oct. 31; by the Jewish Cultural
Committee of the Jewish Commu-
nity Council in Grand Rapids on
Nov. 21; and by the Jewish Com-
munity Center of Highland Park,
N.J. on April 8. The initial try-out
of the play was held in Baltimore
under the joint auspices of the
Jewish Community Center and the
Zionist Organization of America.
