The NEW New Yiddish Rep
From our studio at 315 ,W. 39th Street, we will begin a new program of classes, readings, children's puppet theater, music, and exploration. Our first event in the space, the commemoration of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising was an inspirational success. And, of course, we will continue to expand the horizons of Yiddish theater in New York.
Hanoch Levin is Israel's greatest playwright, a post-modernist who has been compared to both Beckett and Chekov.
