Part interview, part conversation, part performance. Join Theater J’s Artistic Director, Adam Immerwahr, in conversation with librettist, theater historian and translator, Nahma Sandrow about her recently published collection of Yiddish plays and scenes (including Mirele Efros, the basis of Theater J’s Yiddish Theater Lab production of The Jewish Queen Lear). Engage with forgotten masterpieces as actors perform excerpts—in their first ever English translation—that span the dramatic to comedic. Hear anecdotes from Yiddish theater’s past and get inspired for Yiddish theater’s future.
