Excellent new, modern production. Great fun. Shayna Blass (Yentl-Anshel) was terrific and totally believable as a Yeshiva boy, much more so than Barbara Streisand. The very good and versatile cast not only acted, but also sang, danced and...continued

It seemed very forced, about a lesbian or bisexual. Did not feel true to Singer (author of story).
Liked Streisand movie much more.
Music also out of place.
