Production Description

Casting "Uriel Acosta," a new version of a Yiddish theater classic. Synopsis: The play tells the story of a man who was a hero of enlightenment Judaism in Amsterdam, a doubter, a questioner, who challenged the tenets of his community and was ostracized for it. Uriel’s drama exists in myriad interpretations by different Yiddish groups; each company would compose its own version of this tale, highlighting different aspects of the story. We will consult as many of these as we can gather, and render a new "Uriel Acosta" for our own time.
