Called "the Coltranes of this genre" by Allmusic.com, Yale Strom's Hot Pstromi is one of the freshest, funkiest klezmer acts in America. But they'll get even fresher at the 13th Annual Klezmer Summit: My Yidishe Mambo, where they'll join forces with trumpet virtuoso Gilbert Castellanos and his Latin jazz band. Shtetl culture meets Salsa in a thrillingly diverse evening of up-tempo grooves and hauntingly beautiful Jewish music that pays homage to the influence mambo, cha-cha and rhumba had on klezmer from post-war America through the 1960s.

As a San Diego Rep subscriber I generally appreciate the Rep's offerings. I did not attend this production on my regular night with my fellow subscribers because of a conflict. (For some internal Rep reason this show was not part of the voucher system – so Goldstar to the rescue!) I was told to be sure to see 'Let me Down Easy' because it was beautifully done and very emotionally moving. My friends were right. Anna Deavere Smith was phenomenal taking on so many diverse parts and doing them so convincingly. I'd recommend this production to anyone who has a heart and has ever cared about someone else.
Quotes & Highlights
Called “the most exciting individual in American Theatre” by Newsweek, Anna Deavere Smith is the winner of two Tony Award® nominations, two Obie Awards, and a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship. You may also have seen her on The West Wing, The Practice, or Nurse Jackie.
For the past eight years, Smith has interviewed hundreds of Americans to create a virtuosic and moving show about the power and vulnerability of the body, the price of health, and the resilience of the human spirit. She speaks directly to our hopes and discomforts about life, death, whom we should take care of and who should(or should not) take care of us. This show is a bracing, poetic experience you won’t want to miss.
