Gimpel Tam, a musical at The National Yiddish Theatre (http://www.folksbiene.org/),
is about a simple man whose faith and innocence are tested by life's
harsh truths (the complete summary is at the end of this description).
There are so many REALLY cool things to say about this show and experience:
-- It's geared towards a mainstream audience with subtitles and everything, but it's in Yiddish, a really cool, expressive language (think of schlep, shtick, chutzpah, etc.)
-- It's based on a short story by the same guy who wrote Yentl: Isaac Bashevis Singer. Singer is the only Yiddish author to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
-- The National Yiddish Theatre is 94 years old (!), making it the longest-running professional Yiddish theater.
-- Our tickets are only $27.99 (it's regularly double that)
So c'mon out and join us, and become a real mensch!
Gimpel Tam's Official Synopsis
This adaptation of Singer's morally complex story of a simple man whose faith and innocence are tested by life's harsh truths will keep you engaged from start to finish. Isaac Bashevis Singer is the only Yiddish author to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. In his acceptance speech, Singer famously said, "There is a quiet humor in Yiddish and a gratitude for every day of life, every crumb of success, each encounter of love." In this story, Gimpel, much like Job, finds his faith tested endlessly when even his crumbs are taken away. For Gimpel, it is his faith in humanity which is tried time and time again by the cruelty of his fellow shtetl dwellers who find amusement in taking advantage of Gimpel's gullibility. But Gimpel reasons that he must believe in his fellow man, no matter how ridiculous the lie, in order to maintain his faith in goodness.
