About This Show

Take a 1925 silent film classic set in the Lower East Side, mix in a tough, but soft-hearted Jewish boxer who secretly fights to pay for his brother’s law school tuition, add the nogoodnik brother who is so embarrassed by his impoverished family’s old-world ways that he proclaims himself an orphan and moves uptown, throw in an Irish girlfriend, a long-suffering mother, a pushcart
peddler father, and then set it all to a new jazz-infused, post- Klezmer, Yiddish swing score written by acclaimed composer/ instrumentalist Paul Shapiro, and you come up with the perfectly irresistible His People. Accompanied live by Shapiro, whose Tzadik releases Midnight Minyan and It’s in the Twilight have entered the canon of modern Jewish music, and his all-star sextet of woodwinds, trumpet, cello, piano, bass and drums. This is a perfect night out for the entire family. His People is sponsored through the generous support of LoHo Realty.
