Yiddish Theater Lab – Spring 2022 Series

Theater J’s on-going initiative is dedicated to preserving and reviving the forgotten literature of the Yiddish Theater. Join us this May for four events–a mix of in-person and on-line–as directors and playwrights uncover and re-interpret nearly-forgotten Yiddish classics in new English language readings, plus a special book talk with eminent Yiddish scholar and translator Nahma Sandrow. 

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

Effective March 21, all visitors over the age of 12 entering the EDCJCC’s building will be required to show proof of vaccination or proof of negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to attending. All patrons in the Goldman Theater and Cafritz Hall will be required to wear masks. Only performers and guests invited onstage may be unmasked. Masks are optional but encouraged in the Q Street and 16th Street lobbies, hallways, and other public spaces. Theater J front-of-house staff and volunteers will continue to wear masks.
