DCJCC Panel: The Social Relevance of Comic Books
My lovely wife and I enjoyed a matinee performance of THE HISTORY OF INVULNERABILITY at Theater J in the Washington, DC Jewish Community Center.
Written by David Bar Katz and directed by Shirley Serotsky, who is also Theater J’s Director of Literary and Public Programming, the play tells the story of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel. As part of Theater J’s Beyond The Stage Discussions and Events I was invited to participate in a panel immediately following the performance on Why Comics Matter: The Social Relevancy of Comic Books.
Moderated by playwright Stephen Spotswood the panel also included Esther Kim, Andy Hersberger, Jared Smith and Matt Dembicki. We took audience questions and enjoyed an informative and thought provoking discussion. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
And if you’re a resident of the DC Metropolitan area or traveling to the region in the next week you still have an opportunity to see THE HISTORY OF INVULNERABILITY. Visit Theater J’s website for more information. The best is yet to come!
