A hit on Broadway when it debuted in 1975, the revered drama Yentl gets a thrilling new adaptation with a rousing rock-pop score by Jill Sobule, singer-songwriter of the original 1995 hit "I Kissed a Girl." 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 set in 19th-century Eastern Europe has inspired legions of artists, including Barbra Streisand, who transformed it into a powerful musical film in 1983.

A very well-done production, with a large ensemble cast and a fast pace with little interruption for scene changes. The plot is tragic and a little cynical. The staging is creative, with a minimal set, and the dramatic scenes interspersed with occasional songs that frame the story as sort of a Greek chorus. The performers have fine voices and blend together in tight harmonies, but sometimes the lyrics were a little hard to understand.
This production contains violence and mature themes.
