Reflections of a Lost Poet:
The Life and Works of Itzik Manger

written by
Miriam Hoffman
Avi Hoffman
Musical Director / Arranger / Pianist
Binyumen Schaechter

This funny and moving performance follows the life
of the great Yiddish poet Itzik Manger.
Through his songs and poems, including
Afn veg shteyt a boym, Yidl mitn fidl and
excerpts from Di Megile-lider,
we discover his joy and anguish
as he lived through the best and worst of times.
In Yiddish, with English and Russian supertitles.
Hoffman and Schaechter were the creative team
behind the hit revue, Too Jewish!
