About Here There Are Blueberries

Get Here There Are Blueberries tickets and experience the latest production from the acclaimed Tectonic Theater Project. A 2024 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama with timely relevance, Tony and Emmy nominee Moisés Kaufman and Emmy nominee Amanda Gronich’s newest work examines, with piercing clarity, the family legacies we unravel even if we are not ready to confront the truth. See the thrilling production named one of the best shows of 2022 by the Los Angeles Times.

Set in 2007, Here There Are Blueberries follows two parallel stories: that of a U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum archivist, who receives an unmarked box of World War II-era photographs, and a German businessman, who also encounters the photos and, within them, recognizes his grandfather — a Nazi, to his great surprise. Kaufman and Gronich’s topical play weaves together these two stories to reveal how we process history that is more personal than we may think.

Experience Here There Are Blueberries in New York this spring. A startling tale with deep present-day resonance, the play made a splash in La Jolla and now comes to New York. See Here There Are Blueberries at New York Theatre Workshop for a limited run only, and set an alert for seats with TodayTix.

Don’t see it if archival story only has so much drama; at timesTed-talk-ish, preachy/didactic; if u know Nazi era, learn little new

Thoughtful, Resonant, Poignant, Unembellished, Absorbing

See it if Tectonic keeps it fresh. Another landmark docudrama from the best. U love museums, libraries, archives. Emotions controlled but intense.

Don’t see it if prefer fiction only, or to “do your own research” by scanning 2 wikis, joining a subreddit, & foregoing contact with primary sources

More information about Here There Are Blueberries

Here There Are Blueberries off Broadway is written by Moisés Kaufman & Amanda Gronich and conceived and directed by Kaufman. A co-production between New York Theatre Workshop and Tectonic Theater Project, the play brings together two of today’s most exciting new-work generators. New York Theatre Workshop is known for its bold productions that often transfer to Broadway, including Rent and Hadestown, while Tectonic Theater Project brings a keen, documentary-style approach to its plays, including the well-loved and perhaps most famous work, The Laramie Project.

While New York Theatre Workshop is based off Broadway, Tectonic often presents works around the country. The company has a unique approach to its process called “Moment Work,” in which it zeroes in on specific moments found in artifacts or first-person accounts to build out a dramatic story. A rigorous process of research and collaboration is the foundation of Tectonic Theater Project, and that style helps create challenging, innovative, and historical works like Here There Are Blueberries.

What to watch for

  • The Los Angeles Times adored this nonfiction drama following its run at La Jolla Playhouse in 2022. “The play meditates on the images of Nazi concentration camp workers fraternizing in a startlingly casual manner,” chief critic Charles McNulty wrote.
  • The cast features Kathleen Chalfant, who is one of New York City’s most adored stage performers. Perhaps most well-known for originating the role of Hannah Pitt and others in the original Broadway cast of Angels in America, Chalfant received a Tony Award nomination for her work in that play. She has also starred in Wit, which earned her multiple awards.
  • Kaufman is the recipient of the 2016 National Medal of Arts, given to him by President Barack Obama for sharing American stories that demand compassion and understanding.
  • Fans of The Laramie Project will know that Tectonic Theater Project works often showcase real-life characters. The company strings interviews together to become the script for Tectonic plays, so the voices and stories of actual people are represented and celebrated in a documentary style.
