"The Golden Bride" wins Drama Desk Nomination

I’m delighted to announce that the off-Broadway production of “Di goldene
kale” (“The Golden Bride”), a 1923 Yiddish operetta restored and edited by
the undersigned and produced by the National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene,
has been nominated for a 2016 Drama Desk award in the category Outstanding
Revival of a Musical. (The other four nominees were all Broadway
productions.) Directors of “The Golden Bride” Bryna Wasserman and Motl
Didner were also nominated, as Outstanding Director of a Musical. The
revival, which was performed in December 2015 and received a “critics’

supertitles this summer, July 4 to August 28, at the Museum of Jewish

The full score, as well as performance materials, will be published early
next year by A-R Editions for the American Musicological Society in the AMS
series “Music of the United States of America” (MUSA).
