Snow in the Back Yard | Postponement Notice

Dearest Friends,
We hope you’ve been keeping warm and cozy during this crazy weather. Unfortunately, due to the amount of snow days we’ve experienced and the extreme frost we are expecting this upcoming weekend, we will have to postpone Edna Mazya’s Games in the Back Yard (scheduled for this Sunday, February 15th at 7PM) until later in the Spring.

As always, we look forward to seeing you at the theatre –– that is, if the snow ever melts!

Giving Tuesday | Grateful for your Gift

Guy Ben-Aharon, Producing Artistic Director & Founder:

Dearest Friends,

We are so thrilled to share the news that Israeli Stage is now officially a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization! This means that all donations are now tax-deductible. We thank the members of our Board, the Israeli Stage Donor Circle and all of our donors who have so generously supported our artistic programming in the Greater Boston Area and beyond. We simply couldn’t do it without you!

As many of you know, Israeli Stage will be mounting its very first Full Production this coming Spring, Gilad Evron’s Ulysses on Bottles, featuring the “best of Boston’s actors” (The Boston Globe). This is our most ambitious project yet and we need your help to make it happen.

During this season of giving, please consider making a donation to Israeli Stage.

We thank you for your support and, as always, look forward to seeing you at the theatre!

Dalia Cahana-Amitay, President of the Board:

Israeli Stage is the only theatre group in the United States that provides an opportunity to experience the works of Israeli playwrights, classical and contemporary, who authentically portray an array of universal human behaviors through the lens of Israeli reality. Guy continues to bring the best actors in the Boston theatre scene, who engage audiences time and again in compelling performances of characters who are in love, conflicted, confused, enraged, depressed, frustrated, elated, proud, in unforgettable performances. Israeli Stage is a new voice in town and I am proud to support something so fresh, innovative, and truly unique!
