World Premiere – Watson at GableStage
Based on the life of IBM founder Thomas J. Watson, Sr., this is the story of the Nazi’s use of IBM’s pre-computer technology and the world’s first “personal information” catastrophe — the systematic identification of Jews. In 1937, Watson became the first American to receive the Order of the German Eagle award, one of the highest honors Adolf Hitler ever bestowed on a non-German. http://www.gablestage.org
