Dear STSANY Members!

The Story of Jo-Beth

The Story of Jo-Beth is a musical retelling of the Biblical book of Job, set in modern-day Midwestern America. It follows the travails of a seventeen-year-old overachiever who abruptly goes from local heroine to town pariah, and has to confront the prospect of losing everything-including her faith in humanity.

The year-long residency of Urban Bush Women in collaboration with Liz Lerman will culminate in engaging presentations of a

dynamic work-in-progress that provokes the audience to rethink enduring questions about wealth and poverty. The presentations will open with an introductory dance docent talk by Wendy Perron, Editor in Chief of Dance Magazine.

The ( * ) Inn

*empty, vacant, abandoned; usually translated as "Haunted"

By Peretz Hirschbein

Adapted & directed by David Herskovits

with Ugo Chukwu, Rachel Claire, Amir Darvish,

David Greenspan, Susan Hyon, Meg McCary, Sam T. West

The shtetl turns uncanny in Hirschbein's classic of Yiddish life. You might be expecting the farm life, the chicken-plucking and the arranged marriage, but not the S&M lust and the body-snatching wedding guests. The ( * ) Inn was an early touchstone for experimental theater in Yiddish, a sensation in Vilna, in London and in a 1917 New York production. This play is a perfect example of why we at TMT believe Yiddish drama is as innovative and challenging as any in the world. It's Tevye on drugs. Watch out.

March 7-30, 2013

Thursday (except 3/14) - Saturdays at 8pm; Sundays at 7pm

Added performance 3/11 at 7pm

Abrons Arts Center,466 Grand Street at Pitt, Lower East Side

(F to Delcancy / J or M to Essex / B or D to Grand)

$20 until 3/1, $25 thereafter
