WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Theatrical legend Theodore Bikel returns to Theater J to unveil his new one-man show with music, story and song about the pioneering 19th-Century author Sholom Aleichem. Sholom Aleichem: Laughter Through Tears is a deeply researched, powerfully felt and beautifully sung show to be enjoyed by all generations. Based on the true tale of the great Yiddish storyteller's youth, fame and challenging journey to America where he eventually died, the play begins with the writing of a will insisting that Sholom Aleichem be remembered with laughter or not remembered at all. This story is told with humor and a rich catalogue of Yiddish songs performed with Grammy-nominated Tamara Brooks on piano and internationally-renowned Bosnian accordionist Merima Klju?o.
