Shakespeare on the American Yiddish Stage - (Studies in Theatre History and Culture) Shakespeare on the American Yiddish Stage - (Studies in Theatre History and Culture)
by Joel Berkowitz

Our Price: $$32.95

Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours

An extremely interesting book. Not only because of the information it provides about Shakespeare plays in Yiddish but also because of the 'secondary' information it provides regarding Jewish customs during the first half of this century.

For example did you know there where 3 Yiddish theaters in New York?

Did you know one had 2,000 seats, a second 2,500 and the third 3,500 seats and they all had DAILY presentations?

This book will take through the Shakespearean world via the street in the NY East Side. A most unexpected and welcome approach you'll all enjoy.
