In 19th century Eastern Europe, a young girl is determined to pursue religious studies -- even if it means breaking Jewish law -- in the stirring and ever relevant Yentl. Forbidden from studying the Talmud because of her gender, Yentl disguises herself as a man and sets out for a yeshiva. But when she falls in love, she must decide how far she's willing to go to protect her identity. Based on Isaac Bashevis Singer's classic Yiddish short story, Yentl the Yeshiva Boy, this powerful tale has inspired legions of artists, including Barbra Streisand who transformed it into a powerful musical film. Now Theater J presents a new adaptation invigorated with a bracing klezmer/pop/rock score from music veteran Jill Sobule ("I Kissed a Girl," "Supermodel"). Learn More

*By Michael Hollinger
Directed by John Vreeke
Novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, but his typist continues to take dictation, causing great consternation from his wife, his publisher and the general public. Where are these words coming from?
A drama about the writing process, creativity and love — with a little punctuation thrown in for good measure.
Featuring Susan Lynskey, Helen Hedman and Paul Morella.
