News   Target Margin Theater Plans Two-Season Exploration of Yiddish Theater
 
Target Margin Theater has announced Beyond the Pale, a two-season exploration of the history and cultural impact of the Yiddish Theatre, which will include a world-premiere production in March 2013.

"The breadth and diversity of Yiddish theatre astonished me. The literature goes far beyond what we often think of as 'Yiddish.' I want to show our community how rich that culture is, and how relevant it is today," said TMT artistic director David Herskovits in a statement. The next two seasons will include full productions, workshops, readings, discussions and concerts that will offer a look at the Yiddish Theatre's domestic drama, philosophical drama, verse drama, avant-garde experimentation, political statement plays, and "the good old nostalgic drama of the Shtetl."

TMT will present its Target Margin Laboratory, curated by John Del Gaudio, Oct. 17-Nov. 3 at the Brick in Brooklyn. In March 2013, TMT will stage a re-imagined classic fron the Yiddish Theatre canon at the Abrons Arts Center on the Lower East Side.
