Muvico Parisian 20 at CityPlace 545 Hibiscus Street, West Palm Beach



Enter the funny, larger-than-life world of Yiddish Theater through this award winning new documentary film about the amazing woman who has kept the oldest running Yiddish Theater in America alive.

Zypora Spaisman is a Holocaust survivor who conquers all hearts in her passion for art, life and Yiddish.

This heart warming story of one unique woman's struggle portrays the fight of both an old art form to stay relevant and an old actress to find meaning and a stage in a society that worships youth. Shot in real time in one of the coldest winters in NY, Zypora's theater has one week to raise funding to keep their show going. Many miracles occur during this week. But will they be enough to save this critically acclaimed Yiddish show?

The film includes unique scenes with many of the last remaining stars of the Yiddish stage as well as leading experts from the Yiddish world, including Seymour Rexite, Shifra Lerer, Zypora Spaisman, Zalmen Mlotek, Nahma Sandrow and many more.

A must see film for anyone who loves theater !
