Christmas at Grossinger’s

By Renee Calarco
Directed by Joe Calarco

Cast: Maria Rizzo, Susan Rome, Chris Stezin, and Dani Stoller.

Christmas at Grossinger’s tells the story of Ava and Joan Carroll, two of the greatest Jewish entertainers of the 20th century you’ve never heard of. Join us for the first chance to hear a new play still in development by local playwright Renee Calarco, inspired by the lives of the Barry sisters, the famous singers who combined Yiddish and the Great American Songbook on US radio, TV, and stage for three decades. And remember, what happens in the Catskills stays in the Catskills!

On Demand available May 12 through May 16

Yiddish Theater Lab

Theater J’s on-going initiative is dedicated to preserving and reviving the forgotten literature of the Yiddish Theater. Join us as directors and playwrights uncover and re-interpret nearly-forgotten Yiddish classes in new English language readings, workshops, commissions, and eventually productions.

The Yiddish Theater Lab is supported by the Marinus and Minna B. Koster Foundation, Natalie Wexler and James Feldman, and the Leshowitz Family Foundation, Terry Singer.
