According to Nelson Pressley in The Washington Post Immerwahr stated: “The first season I program will be subject to a certain kind of scrutiny,” Immerwahr, 33, said Friday by phone from Princeton. “My goal is to program a diverse variety of plays on a great many themes and topics, and Israel is absolutely one of those. There are difficult questions to ask about Israel for all American Jews, and we won’t be shy about asking them if we feel there is art that asks them excellently.”
