About this show

Follow the life of the beloved Yiddish storyteller as he spins tales of his loves and losses, his fame and failures, his passionate involvement in the creation of a new homeland, and the tremendous optimism that kept him going against all odds. Audiences are treated to an in-depth look at the joyous and poignant events that inspired the foolish philosophers, philosophical fools, comical shtetl folk, and not-so-comical scoundrels that populated Sholom Aleichem's world. Starring veteran performer Chris DeCarlo, who assays the role of the beloved author, a characterization which has been enjoyed by over a quarter of a million people; and Evelyn Rudie, who has created more than three dozen Sholom Aleichem characters.
