It's debatable whether Walt Disney ever really did meet with Adolf Hilter in 1935 -- but what if they did? What if he met with Leni Riefenstahl and Joseph Goebbels and they talked about making fascist cartoons?

Come check out this theatrical what-if exploration in the play at 975 Howard (between 5th and 6th), Thursday through Sundays through Feb. 24. (Disclaimer! We're friends with the actor playing Goebbels! Our friend is nothing like Goebbels in real life, we hasten to add.) Get tickets here ($20).

It seems like the play has triggered some intense discussions in the animation blogging community -- we will readily confess that we don't normally follow the conversations of that particular interest group all that closely, but the debate seems intriguing, and the production is getting good reviews too. (Yay for our friend!)
