God, Man and Devil Got, Mentsch un Taybl

"... an all-star version of Jacob Gordin's God, Man and Devil was likely the costliest production of Seiden's career, and, thanks to his choice of material, also the best." - J. Hoberman, Bridge of LIght

A wager between God and Satan has dire consequences in this allegory based on the play by Jacob Gordin about the material world's false promises. Beware when money sounds sweeter than music, it cautions; those who win lotteries stand to lose all, including their spiritual treasures, families, communities and religion.                                                                                                                                                                                                            

You don't have to speak Yiddish to enjoy them because they all have subtitles.  There is no fee to attend and light refreshments (popcorn & soda) will be available. For additional information, contact Brenda Bergstein at brenda [dot] bergstein [at] gmail [dot] com or 301-910-3520
