The Jewish Queen Lear

Davis Performing Arts Center
37th St NW & O St NW Washington

If it's not one thing, it's your mother! Written in 1898, Gordin's story of power and pride revolves around Mirele Efros, a wealthy widow and clever business woman who wants to find a good wife for her son. When her children turn against her, Mirele experiences a fall of Shakespearean proportions. Wildly successful in its time, Gordin's masterpiece of Yiddish theater shines in a scintillating new English translation. Produced in partnership with the Georgetown University Theater and Performance Studies Program. Featuring Tonya Beckman, Karl Kippola, Valerie Leonard, Alana D. Sharp, Sue Jin Song, and Frank X.
