Having played every role from streetwalker to saint over the course of six decades, and having racked up every conceivable award in the process—not least, the coveted Israel Prize—Gila Almagor is the reigning queen of Israeli stage and screen. Though she’s also been dubbed Israel’s answer to—by turns—Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Meryl Streep, this Haifa-born force of nature is a true original, as you’ll have two opportunities to see at the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center.
On Sunday, May 21st, Almagor will perform her long-standing one-woman show. Also titled The Summer of Aviya, it’s one of the most captivating pieces of theater you’ll see this year.
