Golden Globe nominee and Tony Award winner Liev Schreiber will be honored at the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene's upcoming December 12 Golden Gala at the Museum of Jewish Heritage on December. Schreiber currently stars as Le Vicomte de Valmont in Les Liaisons Dangereuses on Broadway.

Inspired by the success of NYTF's recent hit revival of the operetta The Golden Bride, the gala will launch a worldwide initiative of identifying and restoring lost and forgotten works of the Yiddish Theatre canon. The endeavor will enlist academic institutions and archives around the globe to contribute to the process.

Additionally, the organization has announced that The Golden Bride will begin a national tour in 2017, with members of the revival's recent cast taking part.

Since 1915, the award-winning National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene has presented a window into the world of Jewish culture by engaging, educating, and igniting the imaginations of generations of theatergoers. NYTF is the longest consecutively producing Yiddish theater company in the world.
