Back to Work

Today is the first day of rehearsal for Shlemiel the First at Theatre J. I can’t wait to get going again – it’s been too long since my last full-blown production.

The photo below is of Dan Manning and me during the concert version Theatre J mounted last fall – I play the town shrew, Yente Pesha, and Dan plays my husband and head of the town council, Gronam Ox. The show is based on the short stories of Isaac Bashevis Singer and has a rousing klezmer score – sort of like Fiddler on the Roof without all the angst. I’m delighted that Theatre J has decided to give it a full production.

I’ll have more information of the Crass Commercial kind as the December 18th opening gets closer, but for now let me just say that I’m happy to be back at Theatre J and to be working with the terrific company of Shlemiel.
