  • About YIDDISH KING LEAR:

A wealthy Russian Jew prepares to celebrate Purim with his three daughters. The eldest is married to an intelligent, orthodox student of religion. The middle daughter is married to a lively young Hassid. And the youngestis married to a nice bright graduate student who has no particular use for Jewish observance at all. As you can imagine, this leads to lively discussion around the table. And when the old man announces that he’s going to divide his business interests among the children and go to live in Israel, one immediately exclaims: “King Lear!” It’s not a translation or an adaptation: it’s the whole postmodern twist, transposed in a 1892 shtetl. This play changed Yiddish theater by bringing realism to the genre.

Written in 1892, Jacob Gordin’s the Yiddish King Lear is a legend of the Yiddish theater. It was the signature role of the great actor Jacob Adler (father of Stella Adler). Gordin’s groundbreaking opus was a fresh interpretation of the story of a patriarch with three daughters who are unkind and disloyal to him. In Gordin’s retelling, the hero is Reb Dovidl Moysheles, a Russian-Jewish merchant whose daughters abandon their filial love and duty towards him. Only one will show him her true love. In David Serero’s adaptation, classic Yiddish songs of the era are added to the play, making it a classic Yiddish Musical!
