“Klezmer for Beginners” at Abrons Arts Center
April 11 @ 8:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00pm, repeating until Apr 13, 2019
Composer, comedian, and performance artist Morgan Bassichis (2018-2019 Abrons Arts Center Jerome Foundation AIRspace Resident) premieres a new performance work that draws on Henry Street Settlement’s archives, Jewish folktales, and music to explore Zionism and its discontents. Bassichis, joined by musician Ethan Philbrick, brings three nights of highly relatable stories set to infectious music to Abrons. Lillian Wald, Amy Winehouse, and the ghosts of the Henry Street Playhouse all make appearances in “what very well maybe new Jewish folktales for the whole neighborhood.”
