Tevye Served Raw
(Garnished With Jews)
October 22 - 25
Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center
with Yelena Shmulenson, Allen Lewis Rickman the shtetl couple from the Coen brothers' A SERIOUS MAN
and Shane Baker the best-loved Episcopalian on the Yiddish stage today
See the Tevye stories performed as the man who wrote them intended! Discover what's not in FIDDLER ON THE ROOF - plus hilarious stories and sketches by the man they called "the Jewish Mark Twain".
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.
TEVYE SERVED RAW gives you a real picture of Jewish life in Eastern Europe, as described by a man who was actually there -- the Greatest (and funniest) Jewish Writer ever, Sholem Aleichem. Featuring a cast of Broadway/Off-Broadway/movie/television/Yiddish theater veterans -- and Hackettstown favorites!
TEVYE SERVED RAW is performed in English and Yiddish-with-English-supertitles. And unlike most of the actors appearing in recent higher-profile Yiddish productions, the cast of the modestly-produced TEVYE SERVED RAW are actual speakers of the language. (In case of emergency, they can ad-lib!) You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll krechtz.
When it ran Off-Broadway, the critics all RAVED:
"Brilliantly directed... A near-even mix of hilarious moments and tear-jerkers... Leaves the audience speechless!"
--THIS WEEK IN NEW YORK
