With ATJT Co-Founder Corey Fischer and Guest Artist Lise Bruneau
The Yiddish Classic by S. Ansky, Adapted by Bruce Myers
Directed by Mark Samuels, Lighting Design by Jim Quinn
In this Dybbuk for two actors, the most enduring play of the Yiddish theatre is boldly revisioned by Bruce Myers, a leading actor in Peter Brook’s company since 1970. ATJT Founding Member Corey Fischer plays nine roles in this adaptation of S. Ansky’s 1922 story of ill-fated lovers, wandering spirits and miracle-working rabbis. Mark Samuels returns to ATJT to recreate our 1989 production, acclaimed for its unique blend of humor and passion. Lise Bruneau is known to Bay Area audiences for her stunning performance as the angel in ACT’s Angels in America.
