AMID FALLING WALLS
Off-Broadway: National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene
Written by Avram Mlotek
Directed by Motl Didner
Cast Includes Steven Skybell, Abby Goldfarb, Avram Mlotek, Daniella Rabbani
A new musical that tells the story of the perseverance of the Jewish spirit during the Holocaust as expressed through Yiddish song. Amid Falling Walls (Tsvishn Falndike Vent) features material written and performed in ghettos, cabarets, partisan encampments in the forests, concentration camps and clandestine theaters. Amid Falling Walls includes first hand testimony of Holocaust survivors through their own poetry and music. Although many of the young men and women in their 20s and 30s who created this remarkable work were murdered during World War II, their songs are brought to life in this theatrical production, the first of its kind: telling the authentic story of resistance and hope through the words and music of those who were there.
