What would you do if Adolf Hitler was your uncle and you became an American pop-culture icon? Well, that's the question and also the theme of Mark Kassen's latest production, Little Willy which is Off-Broadway in New York from April 6 to April 30.
And it's certainly something worth checking out, especially as tickets are just $15.
Little Willy is about William Patrick Hitler. Press blurb says of William aka Willy "... was a playboy, a car salesman and a United states Naval Soldier. As he pushed his way into American society, he seduced women, endorsed products, and tried as hard as he could to become a pop-cultural icon. It didn't work. Little Willie follows Hitler's estranged nephew as he pledges his allegiance - to anyone who'll have him."
Written by Mark Kassen, who also stars in the lead role of Hitler's nephew, the production runs to 90 minutes.
If you were wondering where you saw the name Kassen before, well as well as doing loads of his own stuff, much of which has a Jewish theme, he is also involved along with his brother Adam in Trigger Street Independent, a production company they own with actor Kevin Spacey.
Little Willy is on at The Ohio Theatre, 66 Wooster Street, New York 10012. Tickets call (212) 279-4200 or visit www.ticketcentral.com
