There's no marquee so you'll have difficulty finding it. It's above a Turkish restaurant.

Played in the audience section, this LAST JEW IN EUROPE is a one-of-a-kind theater experience. Full of humor, though the issues are pretty tragic, the play transforms you into another world--far from New York, but at the same time right here. This...continued

A very smart and entertaining evening!
The kind of theater that makes you think and laugh--and it sticks in your head for days after you have seen it. (For the past few days I keep talking about this hours every day--and it amazes me!)

Description

The Jewish Theater of New York is proud to announce that after a year and a half of an amazing run by an excellent cast of actors, a new and highly talented cast is taking over. Last Jew in Europe, the play that won the hearts and minds of top European critics, was written by Tuvia Tenenbom and is directed by Lois Scarpati.

Last Jew in Europe, the Jewish Theatre’s longest running show to date, first opened in New York in March 2007. Extended for the seventh time, the show returns to the stage following a summer hiatus.

Last Jew in Europe is also playing in Warsaw, at the prestigious Teatr Na Woli. The show, which opened on March 15, 2008, garnered some of the best reviews of the season in Poland.

This modern love story in an old neighborhood is set in the Polish city of Lodz of present time. Lodz (pronounced “Wooj”) has hardly any Jews living in it, yet the hate of them surprisingly keeps growing.
p. Last Jew in Europe, which uses documentary materials, tells the story of love between a young Polish Jew and his Christian fiancée. Fearing that she would walk out on him if she knew he’s Jewish, he refuses to divulge his Jewish identity to her. But two days before their wedding, a young Mormon from Utah on a mission to uncover Jewish families in Poland, arrives in Lodz and meets with the girl.
