Penned by Spain’s National Theater Award recipient, Juan Mayorga’s WAY TO HEAVEN (HIMMELWEG) has been produced in London, Paris, Madrid, Buenos Aires, Sydney and New York, among other cities. The production now being presented at Repertorio has received unanimous praise from New York critics, led by The New York Times (Critics' Pick), Backstage (also a Critics' Pick) and NYTheatre (Reviewer's Pick).
"A perversely theatrical chapter of the Holocaust is hauntingly re-enacted in Juan Mayorga’s play “Way to Heaven,” about the sham Jewish settlement at Theresienstadt, or Terezin, in what is now the Czech Republic, set up by the Nazis to persuade observers that Jews were held in humane conditions. A makebelieve utopia, Theresienstadt (the German name) was an effective propaganda tool. In reality, it was a concentration camp, and a way station leading to Auschwitz and other death camps. This spare, eloquent work, leanly directed by Matthew Earnest, is a powerful illustration of how theatrical artifice can be pressed into the service of atrocity."
- Andy Webster, The New York Times
