Photo Flash: First Look at Target Margin Theater's THE ( * ) INN
Performances are set to begin Thursday, March 7, 2013 with for a limited engagement through Saturday, March 30, 2013. Opening night is Monday, March 11, 2013 at 7:00PM at Abrons Arts Center (466 Grand Street).
The shtetl turns uncanny in Hirschbein's classic of Yiddish life. You might be expecting The Farm life, the chicken-plucking and the arranged marriage, but not the S&M lust and the body-snatching wedding guests. The ( * ) Inn was an early touchstone for experimental theater in Yiddish, a sensation in Vilna, in London and in a 1917 New York production. This play is a perfect example of why TMT believes Yiddish drama is as innovative and challenging as any in the world.
