Footsteps of Yiddish Theater

Sunday, January 8

 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.Discover the colorful history of Second Avenue with theater historian Cezar Del Valle.
 Once the Manhattan center of Yiddish American culture and the U.S. center of Yiddish theater, Second Avenue below 14th Street was home to the stage, vaudeville, burlesque, and early movie houses of this culture. As the Yiddish stage began to fade, Off-Off Broadway started to appear in old union halls and storefronts. We will visit sites associated not only with Molly Picon, Jacob Adler, Maurice Schwartz, and Boris Thomashefsky, but also Henry Fonda, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, and Weber & Fields.
