RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

This “Passover oratorio” by the composer of Runaways is a disarmingly simple account of the birth and life of Moses, and of the Exodus, done with masks and a clever use of puppetry. This unusual show was originally produced (and later revived) during Passover at Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival Public Theatre.
