An Unexpected Side to Yiddish Theater

470 220 JewishWebSight

Mitzi Manna, an international star of the Yiddish stage, has appeared in basements everywhere from Berlin and Bucharest to the Bronx and back. She is thrilled to at last be telling her tale for Tinseltown. Mitzi sings and recites songs and poems written for and about her in her beloved mame-loshn, but she also spills all the tea from her long and checkered career in whatever language the audience understands the best—including ASL, Pig Latin, and the International Language of Love.

See the Mark Taper auditorium stage transformed into a cabaret around which will flit the one-of-a-kind Shane Baker, acclaimed Yiddish actor , translator, magician, AND Director of the venerable Congress for Jewish Culture, NY.
