I have attended most of the performances by New Worlds and every one has been wonderful. The producers and actors have all been very talented.
New Worlds Theatre promotes the legacy of Yiddish literature. Many of these Yiddish playwrights have never been translated and/ or produced on stage
before New Worlds Project.

New Worlds Theatre Project is a wonderful opportunity to see old Yiddish theatre in English. The actors and directors do a fabulous job translating the plays. They are consistently wonderful plays.

Fine original translation and well directed, casted and acted, staged reading of
"Carcass" a little known piece by Yiddish playwright Peretz Hirshbein.
As a college teacher of Yiddish lit ( far from NYC) I was glad a visit coincided with the performance.
A bonus was meeting two
former students in the audience who were also impressed by the performance. I hope funding can be developed to allow taking the shows on the road.

New Worlds Theatre Project brings alive the past and in doing so shows us what is relevant and meaningful in our world today. The productions I've seen have always been a hallmark of professionalism and creativity. They're consistently beautifully rendered by the best directors and actors New York has to offer.

This is a hidden gem of a theater. The performances i have been to are just terrific. The translations capture the soul of the original in a way that resonates with modern audiences. The staging and directing are original. The acting is excellent. I strongly urge anyone with an interest not just in Yiddish theater -- but in good theater -- to attend.
