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.

Probably would have liked this more had I not already seen New Jerusalem--a fully produced and wonderful play about essentially the same topic. Having said that, it was interesting to see a play during its development stage. And some of the actors were quite good. Others definitely still need a lot of rehearsing! The JCC is doing a number of events about Spinoza. Great idea.
