Mogulesco: A Tale of Yiddish Theater
December 3, 2012
A musical revue of the life and work of Zelig (Sigmund) Mogulesco (1856-1914), often called the “Charlie Chaplin of the Yiddish theatre”. As opposed to the heaviness and melodrama of the early period, Mogulesco was known for his comedy, agility, and also songwriting—he penned no less than "Khosn kale, mazl tov." Written by Mark Slobin. Directed by Michael Morris. Performed by the Jumbo Knish Factory; Michael McLaughlin, director. Co-sponsored by Tufts Music, Tufts Hillel, and 3Ps.
Free; no tickets required
