SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15TH 8 PM
What's a nice goy like you doing in a show like this?
An absolutely hilarious combination of magic, tall tales, hypnosis,and
riveting recitation, our resident gentile Shane Baker takes us on a trip
down memory lane to the vanished world of Yiddish vaudeville. In English
and Yiddish with English Supertitles.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15TH 10 PM AND
PSOY OY OY!!! AN EVENING WITH PSOI KOROLENKO
Psoy Korolenko, charismatic Russian/Jewish multilingual poet-singer,
performance artist, and fellow traveler in the global diaspora, brings his
talents to the New Yiddish Rep's stage in a series of four appearances.
His unique one-man show balances folk, klezmer, rap, sound poetry and
intellectual cabaret/comedy. As a writer and scholar he is known for his
interest in otherness, diaspora, territory, minorities, and borderlines.
The Jewish experience is to him not only a personal story, but also a
metaphor of transcultural identity and ultimate otherness. He sings in
English, Russian, French, and Yiddish. He performs all over Russia, as
well as in Israel and the USA.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 16TH 3 PM
ABSOLUTELY ANNA (IN ENGLISH)
Ever wonder what it was like to work with people like Mae West, Walter
Mathau, Woody Allen, Sid Ceaser, John Garfield, Art Carney, Frederic
March, and others too numerous to mention. Or what it was like to be there
in the early days of the actors studio when Marlon Brando was cutting his
teeth on method acting. In her one woman show Anna Berger, whose career
spans 50 years, tells the story of a young girl's journey from the lower
east side to Broadway and Hollywood.
Among her favorite films she has appeared in are Woody Allen's CRIMES AND
MISDEMEANERS and THE TAKING OF PELHAM 1-2-3.
There will be a Q & A after the show.
