Location: Oheb Shalom
An Evening with Debra Caplan
Author and Assistant Professor of Theater at Baruch College, City University of New York
She will discuss her book,Yiddish Empire: The Vilna Troupe, Jewish Theater, and the Art of Itinerancy.
This book tells the story of how a group of itinerant Jewish performers became the interwar equivalent of a viral sensation, providing a missing chapter in the history of the modern stage. Achieving a most unlikely success through their productions, the Vilna Troupe (1915-36) would eventually go on to earn the attention of theatregoers around the world.
Debra will have books to purchase and sign.
All are welcome! No Charge!
