Some exciting Yiddish Theatre happenings in New York City 2016, with the National Yiddish Theatre-Folksbiene(NYTF) having tremendous success with its production of “The Golden Bride” (two Drama Desk Award nominations) and a wonderful exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York on the history of Yiddish Theatre in the Big Apple.

Must sees!

We’re proud to have our film showcased in the shops of both the Museum of the City of New York and the Museum of Tolerance, new home of the NYTF.
