The JArts TheatreWorks group proudly presents a staged reading of “A Bintel Brief.” The “Bintel Brief” was a Yiddish advice column that started in the early 20th century by Abraham Cahan, the editor of Der Forverts (The Forward). Through letters, advice and wisdom, this column, which originally connected Jewish immigrants to their community, now asks us: How do we stay connected despite the distances between us?
Join us for the premiere of these letters reimagined, followed by a Q&A with Dr. Jonathan Sarna, the Joseph H. & Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History and director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University. The program is being created in partnership with the Yiddish Book Center and the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene.
Directed by Dori A. Robinson. Starring Lyndsay Allyn Cox*, Jesse Garlick, Barbara Grossman, Stuart Hecht, Annette Miller*, Shoshana Narva, Joshua Luckens and Rebecca Smith.
*Denotes member of Actors Equity Association.+ More... - Less...
