Uriel Acosta: I Want that Man!
the classic Yiddish drama adapted by Target Margin Theater
from myriad literary and historical sources
presented by The Chocolate Factory
directed by David Herskovits
A new adaptation of one of the central plays of Yiddish history. Apostate, believer, lover, teacher—Uriel Acosta is all of them. And he is too much for the Jews of Amsterdam in the 17th century. When they excommunicate him a struggle ensues in the soul of every thinking, feeling being. Uriel challenges us all.
with Don Castro, James Tigger! Ferguson, Mary Rasmussen & J.H. Smith III
