Madoff Play With Wiesel Scene Back On, Without Wiesel

Much flak was given last week to Theater J in Washington, D.C., when the company, at the behest of Elie Wiesel, canceled a play about the Bernard Madoff scandal. Wiesel was apparently upset about being depicted in a fictional jailhouse scene. But now, the play is back on — this time at a different locale and with a character of a different name.

The play, “Imagining Madoff,” written by Deborah Margolin, will have its premiere at the Stageworks Hudson theater, a few hours north of Manhattan.
