THEATER J THE JEWISH QUEEN LEAR

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 20 Adar II 5779

12:00 PM - 3:00 PMGeorgetown University Davis Performing Arts Center

Join the Adas Israel group attending March 27 at 12:00 Noon! A bold, independent heroine for the ages, Mirele Efros--the Jewish Queen Lear—stands at the center of this epic, gripping story of power, pride and maternal sacrifice. A wealthy widow and savvy businesswoman who wants to find a good wife for her son, Mirele suffers a fall of Shakespearean proportions when her children turn against her. Wildly successful in its time, this 1898 masterpiece of Yiddish theater shines in a scintillating new English translation directed by Theater J’s Artistic Director.

We will be providing a bus leaving from Adas at 11:15am. Join us at 11am in the Youth Lounge to hear from Cantor Arianne Brown about the work she did on this production.
