MAY 4 and 6 2017 National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene presenting at the Museum for Jewish Heritage:

JULY 18, 2017  National Yiddish Book Center


Based on a play written in Yiddish at the turn of the Century by I.L. Peretz, this project spans more than a decade.   With music by Frank London (The Klezmatics) and lyrics and text by Glen Berger (Spiderman – Turn Off the Dark)  the project is now a vibrant touring theatrical concert.  The 10 member ensemble is joined by a local guest narrator who frequently performs a translated text, accompanied by a 90 min. video designed by Kate Howard with imagery from Tine Kindemann and a host of animators. This current incarnation of the show has been presented in São Paulo, Milan, Copenhagen, Warsaw, Toronto, Bard SummerScape, and Mass MoCA.
