We aim to mine the artistic cultural and creative core of Ashkenazic theater and to infuse that essence into the body of present and future theater and theatrical practice. New Yiddish Rep wants to catalyse and remix the energies of the master Yiddish theatrical community whose apex has already been achieved; the Ashkenazic and Yiddish speaking potential audiences whose familiarity with Yiddish theater is limited or naive; the new generations seeking a relationship with the past and significance in the present; the continuum of Jewish communities in addition to the Ahkenazic, and theater enthusiasts of every persuasion.
We aim to educate a new generation of Yiddish actors and to illuminate for the public the diversity, cutting edge creativity and universality of the Yiddish theater legacy. We strive to reach and to create new audiences even as we strengthen and satisfy existing ones.
We would love it if you spread the word on social media
