    Designed to be “99 44/100% nostalgia-free,” The Essence: A Yiddish Theatre Dim Sum introduces Yiddish language and Yiddish theater to new audiences via scenes from plays, songs, anecdotal material, episodes from Jewish history, and “irrelevant interludes”. No language skills required (except maybe a little English). Featuring A Serious Man’s Allen Lewis Rickman and Yelena Shmulenson and Broadway veteran Michael Garin, the show has played to sold-out houses at New York’s New Yiddish Rep and to standing ovations in Sweden.
