The Whole Megillah: The Story of The Yiddish Theatre

Hosted By: Chicago YIVO Society

“The Whole Megillah: The Story of The Yiddish Theatre” covers the moment of its birth in Rumania in 1876, to its rapid spread across the Western Hemisphere, to its meteoric flowering into a Golden Age, a flowering that would last but a few short decades – and carry the seeds of its own destruction. It’s an amazing story, full of twists and turns that are – like Yiddish theatre itself – sometimes outrageous, sometimes poignant, but always melodramatic.

3 p.m. ET/ 2 p.m. Central
