Target Margin Theater continues the exploration of Yiddish Theater with the re-imagined classic play, The ( * ) Inn, *empty, vacant, abandoned; usually translated as "Haunted by Peretz Hirschbein". Under the direction of TMT's Artistic Director, David Herskovits, the cast will feature TMT Company Member David Greenspan with Ugo Chukwu, Rachel Claire, Amir Darvish, Susan Hyon, Meg MacCary, and Sam T. West. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below!
Performances are set to begin Thursday, March 7, 2013 with for a limited engagement through Saturday, March 30, 2013. Opening night is Monday, March 11, 2013 at 7:00PM at Abrons Arts Center (466 Grand Street).
The shtetl turns uncanny in Hirschbein's classic of Yiddish life. You might be expecting The Farm life, the chicken-plucking and the arranged marriage, but not the S&M lust and the body-snatching wedding guests. The ( * ) Inn was an early touchstone for experimental theater in Yiddish, a sensation in Vilna, in London and in a 1917 New York production. This play is a perfect example of why TMT believes Yiddish drama is as innovative and challenging as any in the world.
