In Honor of MLK Day: National Yiddish Theatre Rebroadcasts “Soul to Soul” Virtual Concert

On January 16-17, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene will rebroadcast its virtual concert “Soul to Soul.” 

“Soul to Soul” celebrates the music and shared experiences of the African American and Jewish communities through a mix of spiritual, jazz, klezmer, and folk music.

The star-studded cast includes Broadway veteran Elmore James (Disney’s Beauty and The Beast on Broadway; Big River), Cantor Magda Fishman (B’nai Torah Congregation in Boca Raton), Tony Perry (NYTF’s Shpiel! Shpiel! Shpiel!), Lisa Fishman (Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish), and Tatianna Wechsler (Oklahoma! at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival; X: Or Betty Shabazz v. The Nation). Wechsler also produced and directed the program for a virtual performance.

Motl Didner, NYTF Associate Artistic Director, wrote the concert script and curated images for the performance, which will run approximately 67 minutes. 

All Yiddish songs will include English translation subtitles.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
