Next week, the good people at New Yiddish Rep will be presenting a brand new, multi-lingual (English-Yiddish-Russian) production of David Schneider's Making Stalin Laugh. I suggest you get your tickets now, as this is strictly a limited engagement and looks to be pretty fantastic.
In 1921 the GOSET troupe moved into a theater right near the Kremlin.
These flamboyant, neurotic, egotistical actors
performed world-class theater in Yiddish for huge audiences...
...most of whom didn’t even speak the language.
They did it for 28 years, through purge, terror, and paranoia.
Then they went too far.
