HOW FAR WOULD YOU FOLLOW YOUR PASSION?
What is the cost when we sacrifice truth for success? Can radical love be pious, or merely provocative? Does every religion sell God for a price? Follow the true story of a play, a playwright, and a plucky troupe of Yiddish theater artists from 1906 Warsaw to 1923 Broadway, from risky experiment to global sensation—and ultimately shattering scandal. The latest hit from the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of A Civil War Christmas, The Baltimore Waltz, and How I Learned to Drive, this highly acclaimed and award-winning drama pays homage to artists ahead of their time and doomed to pay the price.
Content Advisory: Based on the real-life story behind Sholem Asch’s controversial Yiddish drama God of Vengeance, this play is suited for middle school ages and up. For younger school groups, we strongly suggest a pre-show workshop to discuss the themes of the show.
