New York City
After two successful Sold-Out Off-Broadway runs in New York City and a Sold-Out weekend in San Francisco’s The Gateway Theatre, The Singing Windmills is going on its first National Tour! Written by Roman Freud and directed by Gera Sandler, The Singing Windmills explores the story of the life and work of the legendary Solomon Mikhoels – a Soviet Jewish actor, artistic director of the Moscow State Jewish Theater, and the chairman of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee. The production attempts to make sense of and restore the lives and art of legendary heroes, whose breath was cut short and whose legacy was erased. This play ponders eternal questions, the fate of an artist, the secrets behind inspiration and the price which one is willing to pay for it.
The play is performed in Russian with English subtitles.
