Rebecca Joy Fletcher Talks Poison Cookies - JDOV Talks
Have you ever seriously thought about the vital role musical satire has played in social change, and what a legacy musical satire is for us Jews? That’s my passion, and that’s what I’ll share with you today, all through the lens of European-Jewish cabaret between the wars. In addition, you’ll get to hear me perform a wild 1937 cabaret song (with new English lyrics by Stephen Mo Hanan and musical arrangement by Bob Goldstone, a song originating from Warsaw’s Yiddish language cabarets) all the while wearing a Hassid’s hat. What more could you ask for? Come on: let’s devour some “poison cookies” together!
