Our guest speaker Stefanie Halpern will present:
The Tenth Commandment to Fiddler on the Roof:
The Yiddish and Broadway Stage Designs of Boris Aronson
This fascinating talk will examine, through the designs of Boris Aronson, the influence that the Yiddish stage had on the American theatrical institution. Boris Aronson, an immigrant Jew from the Ukraine, began his career in the Yiddish theaters of New York, and would go on to become one of Broadway’s greatest stage designers, creating the sets for over 70 shows and winning the Tony Award for Best Scenic Design six times.
Stefanie is a doctoral candidate at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. Her work deals with the relationship between the Yiddish and English-language stages in America. She is also a curatorial assistant at the Museum of the City of New York and is working on the upcoming exhibition Yiddish Theater: An American Story (September 2015).
