Vagabond Stars: A World History of Yiddish Theater by Nahma Sandrow

Sale price$ 19.95


Vagabond Stars: A World History of Yiddish Theater is the most thorough overview of Yiddish theater. The book describes the theater’s development in Europe and America from folk sources through early literary efforts, to the fine dramas, popular shows, glamorous stars and adoring fans of its heyday in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.  It traces not only the destruction of Yiddish theater under Hitler and Stalin, but also its persistence all over the globe today.  The book places Yiddish theater in dual contexts: both Jewish history and the styles of other contemporaneous western theaters.  Sample scenes illustrate styles and periods; the book also provides a guide to transliteration and pronunciation, and many illustrations.
