Sunday-@-the Segal

A series of intimate conversation and riveting lectures at The Leanor and Alvin Segal Theatre



with Nahma Sandrow


Continuing our terrific season at The Segal showcasing various musical genres- Jazz in The Satchmo’ Suite, Charlotte von Mahlsdorf’s antique recordings in I Am My Own Wife and the stirring beauty of Mozart in Amadeus - we now offer the uplifting Klezmer of The Dora Wasserman’s Yiddish Theatre’s Those Were the Days. This lively musical revue is an award-winning song and dance extravaganza that crosses age, cultural and linguistic barriers.

Don't miss this vibrant edition of Sunday-@-the-Segal for the upcoming production of Those Were the Days as we welcome author and playwright Nahma Sandrow. Ms Sandrow will offer a dynamic talk on Vagabond Stars: A History of the Yiddish Theater.

Nahma Sandrow, author of the definitive Vagabond Stars: A World History of Yiddish Theater and 'God, Man, and Devil': Yiddish Plays in Translation, has also written two award winning off-Broadway musicals based on Yiddish theatre material. She has written books, articles, and reviews on Yiddish, American ethnic and other aspects of theatre and theatre history, and has lectured at Harvard, Brown, Oxford, the Smithsonian, the Young Directors Lab at Lincoln Center and other venues.
