|CONCERT • MAX WEINREICH CENTER
|YIVO presents Hy Wolfe in a concert performance, accompanied by Herbert Kaplan at the piano.
New York stage actor and singer Hy Wolfe returned to our stage with a show featuring Yiddish theater and folk songs and stories.
Wolfe worked with, and learned from, many of the brightest stars of the Yiddish theater, and is a living link with a glorious tradition. The show includes a tribute to the late Shifra Lerer, the last of the greats from the classical period of the Yiddish theater.
|Hy Wolfe is the artistic director of the Yiddish National Theatre and the director of CYCO (Central Yiddish Culture Organization). His first language is Yiddish; he acts with equal ease in English and Yiddish. Mr. Wolfe has performed on stage, screen, and television.|
|Herbert Kaplan toured for nearly 10 years with his brother as a two piano team, then attended Yale University School of Music and the Vienna Akademie. He has been the music director and/or arranger of countless musicals and the composer of four.|
