Theo Bikel @ Boston Jewish Music Fest, Boston, MA, 1 Mar 2014

An evening with Theodore Bikel: A celebration and concert

Sat, Mar 1, 7:30pm
Berklee Performance Center
136 Massachusetts Ave
Boston, MA

How many people can claim they were in both The African Queen and Fiddler on the Roof? Folk singer; theater, film and television actor; radio host; president of Actors’ Equity; political activist; Jewish spokesman and author; these are just some of Theodore Bikel’s many accomplishments. He’s an icon, a beacon of Yiddishkeit and humanitarianism. This is his first appearance in Boston in years, just months before his 90th birthday. Joining Mr. Bikel in concert, under the musical direction of Boston’s own Hankus Netsky, will be acclaimed accordionist Merima Ključo, Rosalie Gerut, Frank London, Daniel Kahn, Josh ‘Socalled” Dolgin, and the Bessere Velt Chorus of the Workmens Circle of Boston.
