Adapted by Tony Kushner
Translated from S. Ansky by Joachim Neugroschel
Directed by Lane Savadove
EgoPo closed out its season with Kushner's poetic, earthy adaptation of arguably the most famous Jewish play ever written.
This story of love, ghosts, and faith is set in a 19th century Polish village where a wedding celebration is interrupted by a supernatural presence. EgoPo's magical staging of this Pulitzer and Academy-winner's powerful words truly made "A Dybbuk" a must-see production.
