We start the evening in the treasured timeless world of Sholom Aleichem, the genius whose stories became FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. This most adored of Jewish writers has been given new life by Saul Reichlin, one of the world's great interpreters of Sholom Aleichem's work. Saul's first production, NOW YOU'RE TALKING! seen here in 2001, played to full houses in 36 cities in 8 countries, including Off Broadway. In his celebrated telling of these funny, touching, forever optimistic tales of yesterday, Saul entices us back to a lost world of poverty, foolishness, misfortune, and the love of life. In this superb new presentation, abundant in all the wisdom and humor of the shtetl, Saul retraces the steps of the great man as he returns to the place of his birth to visit his roots. Leaving for now the world of Tevye the Milkman and Menachem Mendel, the matchmaker, we follow the hilarious adventures of the one and only Sholom Aleichem, himself, in Kasrilevkeh. After the interval, we are in another world, that of Gimpel the Fool. Saturated in the passions of life, this is the masterpiece that made I.B. Singer world famous and led to his Nobel Prize for Literature. Hilarious, frightening, heartbreaking, the story of a 'sainted fool, a tragi-comic tale of lies, deception and love. Saul Reichlin's explosive dramatization of Nobel Laureate, Saul Bellow's powerful translation. An unforgettable tale of blazing imagination, a battle ground of the wicked, the grotesque, of simple faith and the elusive truth.
