Awake and Sing! - 2017 - Off-Broadway

New Yiddish Rep presents Clifford Odets' 1935 masterpiece Awake And Sing! beginning November 25th at the Theater at the 14th Street Y. A Yiddish version of Awake And Sing! was produced on Broadway by the Federal Theatre Project in 1938 and it is this translation that will be performed in the upcoming Off-Broadway revival with English supertitles.

Generally considered Clifford Odets' finest play, Awake And Sing! is the story of the Bergers, a lower-middle-class, three-generation Jewish family living in a Bronx apartment during the Depression. The play recalls that this country was founded as the land of opportunity for immigrants who came with an enduring belief in the American dream.
