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.

Ragtime won four of its 13 Tony Award nominations in 1998, including best score, book and orchestrations. It includes show stopping songs as “Getting Ready Rag,” “Your Daddy’s Son,” “Wheels of a Dream,” “Till We Reach That Day,” “Back To Before,” and “Make Them Hear You.” This momentous musical is sure to inspire actors and audiences alike!
Flaherty’s score is just as diverse as the Melting Pot of America that it seeks to recreate. It draws upon traditional Jewish folk sounds to color the haunting music of the immigrants, Vaudeville’s outrageous style to capture the spectacle of Evelyn Nesbit, and Joplin and Jazz to invoke the enlivened spirit of Harlem.
A stellar cast of 37 including professional guest actors and young local talent is headed by Shaun T. Evans, Darrell Albritton, Brandon Pohl, Amanda Kramer, Kezia Liu, Jennifer Harrell and Eric Weaver.
The production is directed by Shaun T. Evans with musical direction by Linda Kernohan and choreography by Christine Wisner Hall.
