Theodore Bikel: In the Shoes of Sholom Aleichem


Wednesday, April 15, 2015
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


A pioneer of Jewish literature who championed and luxuriated in the Yiddish language, Sholom Aleichem created dozens of characters for whom humor and pathos always coexisted. And if Tevye the Milkman is the best known, it’s in good part due to TheodoreBikel, who has played the character on stage more than 2000 times—as well as countless other roles on stage and screen. This enchanting documentary recounts the stories of both of these Jewish icons.
