Yiddish theater offered Yiddish-speaking Americans highly artistic productions, from melodrama to avant garde, and a rich range of popular shows. Sandrow is the author of the definitive Vagabond Stars: A World History of Yiddish Theater and God, Man and Devil: Yiddish Plans in Transition. She has also written two award winning off-Broadway musicals based on Yiddish theater material. This is the final event in the five-part 2007-2008 KULTUR series.
