Mitzi Manna’s Yiddish Theater Torch Song
Sunday, June 02, 2019
Mark Taper Auditorium
LA Made, Performance
Free tickets available via Eventbrite.
Mitzi Manna, an international star of the Yiddish stage, has appeared in basements everywhere from Berlin and Bucharest to the Bronx and back. She is thrilled to at last be telling her tale for Tinseltown. Mitzi sings and recites songs and poems written for and about her in her beloved mame-loshn, but she also spills all the tea from her long and checkered career in whatever language the audience understands the best—including ASL, Pig Latin, and the International Language of Love.
Program will be in both English and Yiddish, with English supertitles for the Yiddish portions.
