Michael Cristofer and Louis Cancelmi will star in the Huntington Theatre Company's premiere of Captors, a new play by Evan M. Wiener. Peter DuBois will direct the play at Boston University Theatre, to run November 11-December 11.

Based on the 1990 memoir Eichmann in My Hands by Peter Z. Malkin and Harry Stein, the play is set in 1960 Buenos Aires, as covert Israeli agents have just captured the man they believe is Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann.

Cristofer, who will play Eichmann, won the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for his 1977 play The Shadow Box. As an actor, he has appeared on Broadway in A View from the Bridge, Hamlet, and The Cherry Orchard, with Off Broadway credits including The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures, A Body of Water, and Trumpery.

Cancelmi, who will portray Malkin, has appeared on Broadway in Vincent in Brixton and Off Broadway in This, The Singing Forest, and The Wooden Breeks, among others.

The cast will also include Christopher Burns as Hans, Daniel Eric Gold as Cohn, and Ariel Shafir as Uzi.

The production will feature scenic design by Beowulf Borritt, costume design by Bobby Frederick Tilley II, lighting design by Russell Champa, and sound design by Mutt L. Dogg.
