Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), reprising the role she created for the U.S premiere at the Manhattan Theatre Club and for which she won an Ovation Award in the L.A. premiere, and Susan Sullivan (Dharma and Greg, Castle) head the cast when L.A. Theatre Works records Diane Samuels’ play for public radio broadcast. In the final months leading up to World War II, 10,000 Jewish children were voluntarily sent by their parents to the UK to escape the certain death of Nazi concentration camps. Most never saw their parents again. Kindertransport celebrates the heroism and hope that kept these children alive. All performances will be recorded live in front of an audience (without sets or costumes) to air on L.A. Theatre Works’ syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.

Young Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90095; $15-$49; 310.827.0889; Join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LATheatreWorks; follow us on Twitter @latheatreworks
