RR: Yiddish New York’s Late Night Cabaret

December 26, 2018
10:00 pm -

Shane Baker’s Yiddish High Art in Low Drag –
Introducing Mitzi Manna In Her First-Ever Final Farewell Tour
(with David Serebryanik)

Mitzi Manna by Jordan McAfee
At the Red Room – KGB Bar, 85 East 4th Street (just west of 2nd Avenue)
Free to the public with a 2 drink minimum.

Mitzi Manna, international star of the Yiddish stage, has appeared in basements everywhere from Berlin and Buenos Aires to the Bronx. She is thrilled to at last be moving on down to the Lower East Side. Mitzi sings and recites songs and poems written for and about her in her beloved mame-loshn, but she also spills all the tea from her long and checkered career in whatever language the audience understands best––including ASL, Pig Latin, and the International Language of Love. Described by the National Enquirer as ‘an unstoppable force of nature’ and by the Times of Israel as ‘a cheap date’, Mitzi Manna will leave you wanting more. Or less. More or less. A show born of the pixillated mind of Shane Baker, the best-loved Episcopalian on the Yiddish stage today. The New York Times declares him “one of the most prominent proponents of Yiddish theater, language, and culture in New York.” The evening will also feature the NY debut of composer and pianist David Serebryanik, who has an international reputation as a concert pianist spanning from Tel Aviv to Tashkent.
