Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The professional Yiddish theatre started in 1876 in Eastern Europe; with the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881, masses of Eastern European Jews began moving westward, and New York--Manhattan's Bowery and Second Avenue--soon became the world's center of Yiddish theatre.  At first the Yiddish repertoire revolved around comedies, operettas, and melodramas, but by the early 1890s America's Yiddish actors were wild about Shakespeare.  In Shakespeare on the American Yiddish Stage, Joel Berkowitz knowledgably and intelligently constructs the history of this unique theatrical culture.

About the Author:

Joel Berkowitz is assistant professor of modern Jewish studies at the State University of New York at Albany.
