Event Contact

Based on the award-winning picture book by Elsa Okon Rael, When Zaydeh Danced on Eldridge Street, starring Jordan Charney (Ghostbusters, Hill Street Blues) as Zaydeh, is a family musical that tells the story of Zeesie (starring Annabelle Wachtel) — a bright, inquisitive girl on the Lower East Side of New York City in 1935 — and what surprises await her and her very stern grandfather on Simchat Torah when they go to shut together.

Also featuring Joanne Halev, Jacob Harran, Scott Harrison, and Samantha Helmstetter. Click here to watch a preview for the performance.

This concert reading of the new musical by Rael, Shellen Lubin, and Matthew Gandolfo will include a talkback with Lubin, Gandolfo, and a few of the actors after the Friday noon performance.
