100 Years of Yiddish Musical Theatre with
National Yiddish Theatre-Folksbiene Director

--Zalmen Mlotek's "100 Years of Yiddish Musical Theatre" with special 
guest Daniella Rabbani and the New Yiddish Chorale comes to KPAC--

Brooklyn, New York.  November 2010. Kingsborough Performing Arts Center's 
season of world-class Dance, Music, Theatre, and Family Shows continues 
with National Yiddish Theatre-Folksbiene's Artistic Director Zalmen 
Mlotek's highly entertaining "100 Years of Yiddish Musical Theatre" with 
special guest star Daniella Rabbani and the New Yiddish Chorale.

"We are honored to have one of the world's foremost authorities of Yiddish 
song with us at KPAC this season" stated Anna Becker, Kingsborough 
Performing Arts Center's Executive Director "Mr. Mlotek is a consummate 
showman and his concert takes us on a musical journey that is at once 
entertaining, informative, and virtuosic."

100 Years of Yiddish Musical Theatre was hailed as the "runaway hit" of 
the Berkeley Jewish Music Festival and was highly praised by Yiddishkayt 
L.A., while Ms. Rabbani's performance was deemed "utterly alive" by the 
New York Observer. This elegant piece celebrates the Jewish musical accent 
in American theatre, beginning with the origins of the Yiddish theatre in 
the wine cellars of Rumania and treating us to operetta arias, humorous 
vaudeville ballads, backstage renditions of Fiddler on the Roof, and more. 
Simultaneous English translations are projected on a large screen.
