Staged Reading with Live Music by Lisa Gutkin. Written by Sholem Asch. Staged reading of Isaac Goldberg’s 1918 English translation of Sholem Asch’s controversial Yiddish play, God of Vengeance, whose initial 1923 Broadway run was closed due to charges of obscenity, and whose story inspired the Tony Award winning play, Indecent, by Paula Vogel. Lisa Gutkin, the Grammy winning composer of the Klezmatics and of the music of Indecent (whose story tracks the history of God of Vengeance) will perform her compositions and arrangements along with local musicians, Donald Jacobs and Velizar Shumanov, including additional new scoring composed especially for this event.
