Joe Papp at the Ballroom
December 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - December 31, 2021 @ 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday and Thursday, repeating until December 31, 2021
Join GableStage this holiday season for a limited engagement production directed by Tony nominee Eleanor Reissa. The World Premiere production is in honor of Joseph Papp who would have been 100 years old this year. A true tribute, Avi Hoffman has been working closely on this production with Joe Papp’s widow.
Joseph Papp, the greatest American theatre icon of the 20th century gave only one public concert in his entire career. In it, he recounted his Brooklyn Yiddish upbringing, his political struggles and his reconceiving of the creative process. Hoffman adapts and recreates the 1978 event.
This production is produced by GableStage in alliance with YI Love Jewish.
