Michael Pennington, The Last of the Unjust, Minimalist Music

Michael Pennington, best known as a stage actor and co-founder of the English Shakespeare Company, discusses his new book Let Me Play the Lion Too: How to be an Actor. As part of the research for his 1985 landmark documentary about the Holocaust, Shoah, director Claude Lanzmann interviewed Benjamin Murmelstein, the president of the Jewish Council who ran the "model ghetto" of Theresienstadt under the Nazis.
