WagCAB presents a night of poetry and spoken word featuring Janahie.
Wagner College Theatre wraps up its 2014-15 Main Stage season with one of the world’s most popular musicals, “Cats,” from April 22-25 and April 29 through May 3. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, with 2 p.m. weekend matinees on April 25, May 2 and May 3.
Featuring music by Andrew Lloyd Webber (“Evita,” “Jesus Christ Superstar”) and based on “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats,” a collection of poems by T.S. Eliot, “Cats” tells the story, in song and dance, of the annual gathering of Jellicle cats, when one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heaviside layer.

At 7 p.m., featured speaker A. Romi Cohn, author of "The Youngest Partisan: A Young Boy Fights the Nazis," takes the mic.
Cohn will be speaking about his experiences in the resistance in Slovakia. Not long after hiding in a yeshiva in Hungary, he adopted a false identity and forged papers for 58 families, gaining access to official Nazi headquarters. He then fought in armed partisan units.
Event will be precluded by a Kosher Dinner at 6:30pm served in the Foundation reception area for invited guests.
