Elie Wiesel Objects, Theatre Backs Away From Madoff Play

“In the fictional play, Madoff in his prison cell recalls a long-ago, all-night discussion with Wiesel in the author’s study. No such meeting ever took place.” Playwright Deb Margolin said that “the 81-year-old Wiesel wrote a letter to her describing the play as ‘obscene’ and ‘defamatory’ and stating that he would have his lawyer stop the production.”
