Shlemiel the First on the West Bank of the Hudson

Jerseyites don’t pull punches, and neither do New Yawkers. So when you hear that Robert Brustein’s fantastic adaptation of Shlemiel the First is playing at Montclair State, get in the car, rent a van for yourself and your buds, whatever, and just hie yourself over to the Kassner Theater, where this Yiddish-flavored musical is tripping the lights fantastic.You don’t yet need your passport to cross the Hudson, parking is just $3.45, and the theater, about 30 minutes from the George Washington Bridge, is gorgeous, the perfect setting for this gem of a play (in English) about the wise men of Chelm. It was written by Isaac Bashevis Singer, the Nobel Laureate for Literature and teller of Yiddish tales.
