    Shane Baker’s Yiddish High Art in Low Drag –
    Introducing Mitzi Manna In Her First-Ever Final Farewell Tour
    (with David Serebryanik)

    Mitzi Manna by Jordan McAfee

    Mitzi Manna, international star of the Yiddish stage, has appeared in basements everywhere from Berlin and Buenos Aires to the Bronx. She is thrilled to at last be moving on down to the Lower East Side. Mitzi sings and recites songs and poems written for and about her in her beloved mame-loshn, but she also spills all the tea from her long and checkered career in whatever language the audience understands best––including ASL, Pig Latin, and the International Language of Love. Described by the National Enquirer as ‘an unstoppable force of nature’ and by the Times of Israel as ‘a cheap date’, Mitzi Manna will leave you wanting more. Or less. More or less. A show born of the pixillated mind of Shane Baker, the best-loved Episcopalian on the Yiddish stage today. The New York Times declares him “one of the most prominent proponents of Yiddish theater, language, and culture in New York.” The evening will also feature the NY debut of composer and pianist David Serebryanik, who has an international reputation as a concert pianist spanning from Tel Aviv to Tashkent.

    Thurs, January 10, 7:00pm
    Conflicted, crazy, interconnected families and glamorous Hollywood screenwriters are my idea of a good time. This terrific writer gave us both in The Mighty Franks, a delightful – and peculiar – account of his west coast childhood. Exploring a new tangent, Michael will talk about his elusive maternal grandmother, who was born in Safed at the end of the nineteenth century in what was then Palestine and tried to erase her past. With music from the splendid jazz singer Lauren Lee, on Person Place Thing; do join us.

  • Person Place Thing and 500 Women Scientists

    Weds, February 6, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
    A New Series: Person Place Thing and 500 Women Scientists
    Why can’t a person go to a bar and hear less about the White House and more about galactic dynmics, magma flow, or Staphylococcus aureus? Problem solved. In the first half of 2019, we’ll present three evenings with women scientists doing fascinating research – astrophysicist Sarah Pearson, volcanologist Einat Lev, and microbiologist Davida Smith, in conversation with Randy Cohen, host of Person Place Thing. Science and liquor: natural companions. Plus live music? All the better.
    Randy Cohen’s first professional work was writing humor pieces, essays, and stories for newspapers and magazines (The New Yorker, Harpers, the Atlantic, Young Love Comics). His first television work was writing for "Late Night With David Letterman" for which he won three Emmy awards. His fourth Emmy was for his work on Michael Moore’s "TV Nation." He received a fifth Emmy as a result of a clerical error, and he kept it. For twelve years he wrote "The Ethicist," a weekly column for the New York Times Magazine. In 2010, his first play, “The Punishing Blow,” ran at New York’s Clurman Theater. His most recent book, "Be Good: how to navigate the ethics of everything," was published by Chronicle. He is currently the creator and host of Person Place Thing, a public radio program.
    Person Place Thing is an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak, not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result: surprising stories from great talkers. We do the show in front of an audience, with live music, and then edit a version for broadcast across WAMC Northeast Public Radio. You can stream our archive at PersonPlaceThing.org or download episodes via iTunes.

    Simona Minns is a Lithuanian born jazz vocalist, Berklee College of Music Alumna, composer and zitherist based in New York.

Her latest work, “A Hunger Artist," blends her haunting vocals with elements of Lithuanian folk, vaudeville, grotesque theater and even rock music to convey the narrative of Franz Kafka's short story by the same title.
    At KGB The Red Room Simona will perform with her fellow colleagues Rinat Tregerman on piano/synthesizer, Aaron Holthus on double bass and Vlade Guigni on drums.
