I’ve seen a lot theatrical productions that promise provocative and entertaining experiences but in reality deliver more propaganda than art. I have never been able to accept that in order to create “conversation” around an issue, one has to take sides. Once you choose a side, you want and need to win. I’ve wanted to see dramatic conversations that include Israelis for many years, so I go to any play that so much as hints at Israeli content, only to be a captive witness to one point of view. Having been thwarted in my quest for “Israelis on the American Stage” for so long, I am thrilled to be able to contribute to this theater company in any way possible. There is nothing else like this company that I know of. Please join us in creating something new and wonderful, in any way you can.
And on the note of new happenings, let me take this opportunity to wish you all a happy new year!
