Yiddish Theater Updates

Couple of interesting items on the Yiddish theater calendar...

Yiddish Plays at Target Margin Theater

Target Margin Theater, under the direction of David Herskovits, has undertaken an ambitious two season exploration of Yiddish theater in English. The past couple of weeks have seen a full schedule of 'Lab' shows presented at the Brick Theater in Williamsburg. I saw Dukus last week and there's still a chance to see the remaining three shows:

    November 2 & 3 at 9:30 pm  
    Shulamis, or The Well and the Pussycat after Abraham Goldfaden 
    Lead Artist: Gil Sperling 
    Goldfaden’s classic operetta offers hum-along Schlagers such as “Rozhinkes mit mandlen,” mixed with male treachery, bride-snatching and infant mortality.

      October 30 – November 3 at 7:30 pm A DOUBLE BILL: 
      After Midnight by Samuel Daixel 
      Lead Artist: Stephanie Weeks
      The clock strikes Midnight. All is still. But is it? Something’s stirring, something’s budding, howling, falling. Something…
      *playing with*
      Cripples by David Pinski 
      Lead Artist: Ásta Bennie Hostetter
      Watch the most damaged members of society vie for the smallest piece of land: “That isn’t your place! … Since I’m standing upon it, it’s mine!”

      And the new season at The Folksbiene...

      A revival of The Golden Land, a musical about the Jewish immigrant experience in the United States, is now playing through December 2. (In English and Yiddish)
