This multimedia tribute to Symphony Space founder and artistic director Isaiah Sheffer (1935-2012) will celebrate the inaugural Joseph Papp Yiddish Theatre’s YI Love NY YiddishFest ‘19.
One of New York's great Renaissance men, Isaiah Sheffer left an indelible mark on music, theater, television, and culture across three decades in the Big Apple. He was the originator of Bloomsday on Broadway, and the comic genius behind the Thalia Follies. He also began his career in the Yiddish Theatre and created great works celebrating Yiddish art and culture.
This celebrity studded event will celebrate Isaiah’s Yiddish life and career and will benefit the Hebrew Actors Foundation as they seek to save the building which housed the historic Union where Yiddish Theatre thrived.
