Does Shakespeare sound better in Yiddish? Join us live from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee as historian Prof Joel Berkowitz, author of “Shakespeare on the American Yiddish Stage” and co-founder of the Digital Yiddish Theatre Project, takes us on a tour of Yiddish theatre’s longstanding and creative connection to the great works of the bard.

Moderated by Monash ACJC Chair Prof Rebecca Margolis, this discussion about the journey Shakespeare to Yiddish stage includes Kadimah Yiddish Theatre’s Evelyn Krape and Galit Klas. Listen to KYT’s recent recordings of Yiddish Shakespeare Monologues here.
