Yentl Aug 28 - Oct 5, 2014  
Theater J Yentl
 
In 19th century Eastern Europe, a young girl is determined to pursue religious studies -- even if it means breaking Jewish law -- in the stirring and ever relevant Yentl. Forbidden from studying the Talmud because of her gender, Yentl disguises herself as a man and sets out for a yeshiva. But when she falls in love, she must decide how far she's willing to go to protect her identity. Based on Isaac Bashevis Singer's classic Yiddish short story, Yentl the Yeshiva Boy, this powerful tale has inspired legions of artists, including Barbra Streisand who transformed it into a powerful musical film. Now Theater J presents a new adaptation invigorated with a bracing klezmer/pop/rock score from music veteran Jill Sobule ("I Kissed a Girl," "Supermodel").

Broken emotionally and physically, Mike now relives the memory of his accident with the help of a live nine-person football squad onstage, finally confronting his demons in the play’s extremely moving and uplifting conclusion. Winner of the Kennedy Center’s Jean Kennedy Smith Playwriting Award.
