Folksbiene Yiddish Theatre Tells A Novel Romance Off-Broadway

News   Folksbiene Yiddish Theatre Tells A Novel Romance Off-Broadway
 
The Folkbienne Yiddish Theatre, which for years has almost singlehandedly preserved the Yiddish stage tradition in New York, will open its latest production, Di Kaprinzne Kale (A Novel Romance) on Dec. 2, after previews from Nov. 21. The show runs until Jan. 2, 2005.

Playwright Abraham Goldfaden's story tells of "Old Yitskhok [who] wants his daughter Khane to marry a nice Jewish man like Shloyme," according to press materials. "But Khane is obsessed with romance stories and wants a husband straight out of her novels. He must speak elegantly. He must be romantic. He must have a moustache. He must be named Franz. And when a pair of shifty chisellers hear about this..." The show, directed by Allen Lewis Rickman, stars Mitch Greenberg, Sam Guncler, David Mandelbaum, Steve Sterner and Ibi Kaufman. English supertitles are used.
