Don’t miss the beloved story of a community and its struggle to balance traditions and desires in a changing world.

Yes, the show is entirely in Yiddish. There are supertitles in English on both sides of the stage throughout the entire performance that translate what is being said or sung on stage in real time. However, most theatregoers find they can follow most of the show without even having to look at them.
