5:00 pm EST – CELEBRATING YOSL:
The Legacy of Joe Papp; A Musical Celebration

This concert is a celebration of Brooklyn-born “Yosl Papirofsky” (Joseph Papp 1921-1991) whose life and legacy are not just a part of our theatrical past, but can be a part of our present and future. Papp bestowed upon us an enduring cultural legacy: Shakespeare in the Park, the Public Theater, and his own rediscovery of the joys of Yiddish language and culture.

This concert will honor Papp’s life, work and socially- conscious career with excerpts of Yiddish Broadway songs, including the highly acclaimed off broadway musical Songs of Paradise.
