Publication Date: 2008-05-07
Joel Schechter has rediscovered the funny and often politically-charged plays of the American Yiddish theatre of the 1930s. "Messiahs of 1933" examines the innovative stage performances created by the Artef collective, the Modicut puppeteers, and the Yiddish Unit of the Federal Theatre Project. And it introduces to contemporary readers some of the most popular theatre actors of the 30s, including Leo Fuchs, Menasha Skulnik, and Yetta Zwerling.
