Long before Barbra Streisand channeled Fanny Brice, Fania Borach performed as a yiddishe Salome in a comedy act written by Yisroel Beilin, better known as Irving Berlin, who often drafted his songs in his mother tongue.

What would the music of Jewish composers and singers sound like if they hadn’t “americanized” their work? Would George Gershwin have written An Amerikaner in Pariz? Would Marvin Hamlisch have won a Tony for A Khor Shurh instead of A Chorus Line? Would we all be singing “the hills are alive” with gezunt fun muzik? Discover the Yiddish sound of Broadway music in a unique program produced especially for The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center by Scott Siegel, creator of Town Hall’s Broadway by the Year. A world premiere!
