Program Overview
Explore key contributions of Jewish artists to the development of the American theatre in general and Broadway in particular. This experience is situated within the context of Jewish immigration to the United States at the turn of the 20th century. We'll focus on Jewish American theatre artists, from Yiddish language theatre of the early 20th century, through theatre artists who define a certain present Jewish identity within the mainstream of the American theatre in a range of genres and tones.
