A Short History of the American Yiddish Theater

Yiddishe Nightingale

Lyric Fest brings a highly entertaining and informative hourlong weekday concert. The program showcases a fascinating body of repertoire that hails from the Ashkenazi traditions of many Central European countries – all kept alive and reenvisioned here in America. Zalmen Mlotek, Artistic Director of the award-winning National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene in NYC will host from the piano bench, with Elizabeth Shammash and Thom King, sharing song and story.
