Description
In "Stardust Lost," Stefan Kanfer brings the colorful Yiddish stage roaring back to life.
Born of ancient traditions stretching back to the drama of the Old Testament, the Yiddish theater was a vibrant part of the immigrant experience. Kanfer invokes the energy, belief, and pure "chutzpah" it took to establish and run the thriving, influential theaters. He reveals the nightly drama and comedy that played out behind the scenes as well as onstage, and introduces all the players--actors, divas, playwrights, directors, and producers--who made it possible. A richly evocative chronicle of its brief but dazzling existence in America, this is both an elegy for and a tribute to Yiddish theater--lost, but not forgotten.
