Woodstock Daddy Producing Play, ‘Hitler’s Love Songs’

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A man who claims he’s partially responsible for the 1969 Woodstock Festival is attempting an even more daunting claim to fame: Producing a play about Adolph Hitler – without the Fuhrer as a character.

Elliot Tiber calls himself “The Woodstock Daddy” because he claims he’s the guy who suggested Woodstock should be held at Max Yasgur’s dairy farm and he provided the permit for it.

Now he’s casting actors for a new play, Hitler’s Love Songs, a story that chronicles the cultured, artistic side of Hitler.

But while Hitler appears in the play’s title, he’s not a character – not yet, anyway. As the Woodstock Daddy puts it, “In a bigger budget, yes. But this is a smaller budget with only two actors.”

The Woodstock Daddy tried to mount a production in New York, but the controversial subject matter caused a furor with potential backers.

Now he’s hoping to hold the U.S. premiere some time in March in the back room of a San Diego coffeehouse.
