New Yiddish Rep (NYR) is pleased to announce an exhilirating line-up for the 2018-2019 season: “A Season of Resistance”. The excitement begins in the Garment District at NYR’s new Kamer Theater with The Whore From Ohio (Di Zoyne Fun Ohayo) (Oct 6, 2018) and makes its way to the East Village at The Theater at the 14th Street Y with the much anticipated return of Waiting for Godot in Yiddish (Dec 21, 2018 - Jan 27, 2019) as part of The 14th Street Y’s Season of “War and Peace”.
“We’ve tried to fashion a season that gives us and our audiences a way to resist the resurgence of the “big lie” through the voices of playwrights like Ionesco, Odets, Levin and, of course, Beckett,” states Artistic Director David Mandelbaum. “We’ve already seen rhinoceroses rampaging in Charlottesville. We’ve seen the rich get richer through the fiction that tax cuts benefitting the wealthy would somehow help the impoverished. We’ve seen the heart breaking plight of refugees being treated like criminals, children wrested from the arms of their parents, For us this is a season of protest and resistance. Its no longer just about Yiddish or Jewish. Its about not standing by and mutely watching the transformation of our society into a replica of the tragic past.”
AT THE KAMER THEATER
(315 W. 39th St, Studio 902, New York, NY 10018)
(344 E 14th St at 1st Ave, New York, NY 10003)
New Yiddish Rep is a theater laboratory on the front line of resistance against the extinction of Eastern European Yiddish theater. New Yiddish Rep speaks to a 21st century audience: modern treatments of the Yiddish classics and Yiddish interpretations of modern and postmodern masterpieces, in an intimate venue, at affordable prices, with easily readable supertitles. Our strategic vision is a Yiddish repertory theater with a 99 seat home of its own, and a long and diverse season that can both delight the public and serve as a training ground for young Yiddish-speaking actors. www.newyiddishrep.org

Roland is a beekeeper. Marianne is a quantum physicist. What are their odds of falling in love? With infinite moments that can change the trajectory of a life, it’s anyone’s guess how cosmic collision is possible. Nick Payne’s Olivier and Drama League nominated hit is a charming, devastating and profound exploration of the universal truth of finding and losing love. A play that balances on the question of “what if” is, at its core, a poignant picture of “what is".
The production features scenic design by James J. Fenton, costume design by David C. Woolard, and lighting design by Andrew Gmoser. Matt Otto is the sound designer.
