WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Sarah Gurfield directs a staged reading of Hershele the Storyteller, a new musical comedy based on Yiddish folk hero Hershele Ostropoler. The story follows an eventful week in the life of charismatic Ukrainian peasant and folk hero, Hershele Ostropoler. After years of spending his time and money at the local tavern, Hershele finally vows to earn enough money to provide his family a nice Sabbath dinner. To accomplish this, he uses his wit and ingenuity, doing everything from posing as a blind beggar to entertaining at the court of a famous rabbi. The show is a funny and ultimately bittersweet tale that explores the difference between the myth and the man. The musical features music and lyrics by Joshua H. Cohen and a book by Brooke Pierce.
