The Bay Area’s own New Yiddish Theater company reprises last year’s sellout run of the hit Yiddish musical (fully supertitled in English) based on poetry by star Yiddish writer Itzik Manger, set to Israeli composer Dov Seltzer’s sparkling score, with new choral arrangements by Josh Horowitz. With one foot in 1930s Eastern Europe and the other in biblical Persia, “Di Megileh “recounts the Book of Esther through the eyes of Esther’s jilted lover, Fastrigoseh the tailor.


Cast includes:
Naomi Newman, Linda Hirschhorn, Heather Klein, Eliana Kissner, Joel Fleisher, Berel Alexander (L-R pictured below)

plus Josiah Polhemus, Gerry Tenney and Evelie Delfino Såles Posch
