Reviews are in for the New York premiere of Bess Wohl's Camp Siegfried which opened Off-Broadway at Second Stage's Tony Kiser Theater November 15. Previews began October 26 for the David Cromer-directed production, which will run through December 4.

At Long Island's real-life Camp Siegfried, two teenagers find themselves headed towards either young passion or fascist extremism on the cusp of World War II. The two-hander stars Lily McInerny (Palm Trees and Power Lines) and Johnny Berchtold (Gaslit, The Wild) in their Off-Broadway debuts.
