The Komediant


NOW PLAYING AT SELECTED THEATERS - The glory days of the Yiddish stage are brought to life in this bittersweet saga of a legendary theatrical family, the Bursteins. Smoothly incorporating rare archival footage and interviews with Yiddish stage veterans (including Fyvush Finkel and Shifra Lerer), this tightly edited, briskly paced documentary is as richly bittersweet--filled with laughter and tears, schmaltz and grit--as the Yiddish theater itself.
