The role played by comic books in fighting fascism is explored in an exhibit spanning almost 70 years. During the war, superheroes such as Superman, Daredevil, and Captain America did battle with Adolf Hitler and his Nazis. Dr. Seuss, then an editorial cartoonist, depicted Hitler frolicking beneath the swaying bodies of executed Jews.

During World War II, the Czech resistance assassinated Nazi General Reinhard Heydrich. The Germans retaliated by randomly selecting the small village of Lidice for punishment. All of the men older than 16 were lined up and shot. Women were sent to concentration camps where many died. Most of Lidice’s children were shipped to Poland, where they were gassed.

This traveling exhibit, created by the Czech government, tells in 19 panels the why, where, and how of the Nazi military’s notorious revenge.

Among the most-performed comedies of the 20th century, Neil Simon’s 1965 Broadway hit is about two recently divorced men – the slob sportswriter Oscar Madison and the neat, uptight Felix Ungar – who become unlikely roommates in a New York City apartment. The play spawned a hit movie (with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau), a long-running TV series (starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall) and even a stage adaptation that turned Felix and Oscar into women named Florence and Olive.

The Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre performs its eighth season of Script-in-Hand – a series of classic comedies called Exit Laughing.
