THE LILLIPUT TROUPE tells the incredible true story of the Ovitz family, seven vaudeville-performing siblings with dwarfism who survived a year in Josef Mengele’s laboratory. Structured as a post-war vaudeville retelling of “Snow White,” the play follows the Lilliputs on their unlikely journey from their home in the mountains to vaudeville stages across Europe to the laboratory of the most notorious war criminal of the 20th century. Combining klezmer music, shadow puppetry, and the humor of vaudeville THE LILLIPUT TROUPE spotlights the power of family, the weight of survival, and the place of theatrics in a world of war.
