Coming Soon: TuBishVanya

It doesn’t look as though my own #MakeItHappen idea is going to go through, but here’s an update about one funded project that caught my attention and may appeal to you as well.

As some of you may know, we’ve been working on an adaptation of Chekov’s Uncle Vanya combining it with a traditional Tu Bishvat seder. We’re thrilled to announce that we won the Schusterman Foundation’s Make It Happen micro-grant and will be premiering our Vanya at the JCC in Manhattan on Wednesday January 15th, 2013. To purchase tickets to the opening night performance go to:

  • Sunday January 19th and Monday January 20th, 2013, we will be performing at Manhattan Theatre Club Studios, 311 43rd Street 8th Floor. Sunday at 1:30 pm and Monday at  7:30pm. Tickets are $15 if you RSVP in advance, and $20 at the door. To rsvp email us at
