The Essence of Yiddish Theater

July 18 , 7:00 pm

A mash-up of scenes, sketches, songs and oddball diversions, “The Essence” is a fast-moving theatrical introduction to Yiddish language and theater. Created by Allen Lewis Rickman, Yelena Shmulenson, and Steve Sterner — the self-ascribed “younger generation of Yiddish theater veterans, i.e. under 80” — the play tells the history of both Yiddish theater and the Yiddish language itself, “from the sublime to the appalling in 83 New York Minutes.”
