Meet Mitzi Manna, the world’s only Yiddish drag queen. Conceived by New York’s Shane Baker, Introducing Mitzi Manna, In Her First Ever, Final Farewell Tour tells the story of how Yiddish theatre saved her life. The show includes cheap jokes, modernist poetry, filthy songs, and amazing magic tricks. Baker, described by the New York Times as “one of the most prominent proponents of Yiddish theatre, language and culture in New York City”, he has performed Yiddish theatre on stages from Carnegie Hall to Stockholm’s Royal Dramatic Theater, including starring as Vladimir in his own Yiddish translation of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.
The show is in English and Yiddish with English surtitles.
Co-presented by the Kadimah, who brought you the hit production Yentl in March, the Jewish Labour Bund and Yiddish Australia.
