Lively Jewish Arts and Culture

Reflections on The Recent Death of Luba KadisonThis homage to Luba Kadison indicates the importance of Yiddish Theatre and the acting aesthetic that has so influenced American theatre and performance to this day. From Stella Adler and her acting school, to Lee Strasburg and Actors Studio, to even the current revival of "Awake and Sing" we can see a continual wellspring of Jewish performance that energizes American theatre and performance. Chloe Veltman's story about Jerry Stiller is interesting because it demonstrates a Jewish performance professional and social lineage that continues to this day.
