"Dreaming in American" presented by The Tales of the Alchemysts Theatre Company
Local professional actors and musicians perform three stories by renowned Jewish novelists: Sholem Asch, Bernard Malamud, and Anzia Yezierska. Using music and spoken word the 90-minute production explores the Jewish immigration and assimilation experience of the last century depicting dreams lost, found and transformed in circumstances that still resonate among immigrant populations today.
