An Evening of Yiddish Theater in Translation
Hosted By: YIVO
Join YIVO for scenes of romance, political symbolism, and low comedy in Nahma Sandrow’s translations, performed by Yelena Shmulenson, Allen Lewis Rickman, Kevin Sebastian, and Jakob von Eichel. The program reflects the variety and range of Yiddish theater repertory, which Sandrow’s new book, Yiddish Plays for Reading and Performance, illustrates through three full plays and nine independent scenes, with directors’ notes. The author will introduce and narrate the program, putting the scenes in the context of Yiddish theater history and dramaturgy.
