The season will begin with The Last Yiddish Poet, by Corey Fischer, Albert Greenberg, and Naomi Newman, to be presented November 6-December 14. Newman will direct this work about lost Jewish comedians, which will feature Fischer and TJT Artistic Director Aaron Davidman.
The season will continue with 2 X Malamud, featuring Bernard Malamud's one-acts The Jew Bird, a darkly hilarious fable of assimilation and identity, and The Magic Barrel, about a hapless rabbinical student's encounter with a mysterious, herring-eating matchmaker. The special program will run three nights only, February 12-15.
Donald Margulies' The Model Apartment will play February 26-April 5. Amy Glazer will direct this work about a husband and wife in flight from much more than their memories of surviving the Holocaust. The cast will include TJT co-founder Naomi Newman.
