National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene Continues Virtual Programming With 15-Minute Yiddish Lessons and More
National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene-led by Zalmen Mlotek, Artistic Director, and Dominick Balletta, Executive Director-continues to bring the stage to global audiences throughout May when Folksbiene! LIVE features virtual programming to entertain, enlighten, and engage.
Launched in March with Zalmen Mlotek's Living Room Concert, Folksbiene! LIVE is an online celebration of Yiddish culture, featuring livestreamed theater, American Jewish performers, concerts, lectures, talks, and other events. The programming provides inspirational and entertaining experiences as cultural and arts venues across the country and world remain closed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
