YI LOVE PLAY READINGS WORLD PREMIERE OF “BULLS AND BEARS” ON SHOLOM ALEICHEM’S 163rd BIRTHDAY- MARCH 2, 2022
– On March 2, 2022, Yiddishkayt Initiative (YILoveJewish.org) will present a day of events on what would have been Sholom Aleichem’s 163rd birthday. One of the highlights of the day will be a virtual play reading premiere of “Bulls and Bears: The Adventures of Menachem Mendl” starring Allen Lewis Rickman, Irene Adjan, and Avi Hoffman.
The virtual play reading premiere of “Bulls and Bears: The Adventures of Menachem Mendl” by Miriam Hoffman is based on the writings of Sholom Aleichem.
Yiddish cultural scholar Miriam Hoffman introduces us to the adventures of Menachem Mendl, the original ‘Luftmensch’ (Air-Person). With a series of letters to his suffering wife Sheyna Sheyndl and visits from assorted shtetl characters, including the aforementioned Tevye, “Bulls and Bears” follows the escapades of our ‘nebbish’ hero Menachem Mendl as he discovers the stock market in Yehupetz.
