TEVYE SERVED RAW is an evening of stories by Sholem Aleichem.
Some of them are Tevye stories, and they're beautiful and dramatic and funny.
Some of them are not Tevye stories, and those are just funny.
But they all come right from the pen of Sholem Aleichem, who is pretty much universally considered the Greatest Jewish Writer Ever.
The Tevye stories are most famous, of course, as the basis of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. But the musical watered them down to make them more acceptable to the Broadway audience of its day. TEVYE SERVED RAW goes back to Sholem Aleichem's original, and it shows you what they left out of FIDDLER.
It's about authenticity.
TEVYE SERVED RAW goes much deeper into what life in the shtetl -- where most American Jews' ancestors come from -- was really like. Plus you find out what happened to the characters after the plot of the musical ends.
TEVYE SERVED RAW is performed in English and Yiddish-with-English-supertitles. And unlike the cast of the Yiddish FIDDLER that's running downtown, the cast of TEVYE SERVED RAW can actually speak the language.
TEVYE SERVED RAW has been in development for over two years in Locations from Tel Aviv to Melbourne (Australia not Florida), Kiev (the city in Ukraine, not the diner), Los Angeles, Bethesda, MD, and in Amherst, MA among other places. This is its first run in New York.
