UNDER THE CROSS To Run At Havoc Theater 6/3-25

UNDER THE CROSS opens this week at the June Havoc Theatre
by Trish Vignola - Jun 6, 2011

According to the program, a conscious choice was made to cast African-Americans solely as Jews to emphasize 'racial otherness' and to make the 'emotional isolation that Moise Ferapontov experiences more palpable.' Although the each member of the cast turned in a superb job, this decision did not make the emotional isolation more palpable. It layered in a bunch of 20th and 21st century American issues and completely obscured the Russian-Jewish experience. Isn't highlighting the Jewish experience the entire point of Yiddish Theatre? I completely support and promote color-blind casting, but in the case of this particular show, it should have been across the board.
