PRESS RELEASE re BOOK LAUNCH

I meant to post this before leaving, but it got lost in the shuffle. So – here it is:

HEAR YE HEAR YE!


The paperback edition of “Finding the Jewish Shakespeare: the Life and Legacy of Jacob Gordin” will be launched at the Stella Adler Studio in New York City on Monday, June 11th, 2012, at 7 p.m.

June 11th is the 103rd anniversary of Jacob Gordin’s extraordinary funeral on the Lower East Side, in which hundreds of thousands of people flooded the streets to watch his coffin go by.

There will be a reading from “The Jewish King Lear,” Jacob Gordin’s first hugely successful play in America and the most famous vehicle for Jacob Adler, the great actor who was Gordin’s collaborator and ally, the father of Stella Adler and the grandfather of Tom Oppenheim, Artistic Director of the Studio founded by and named for her.

And then the author of the book – moi – will speak about Gordin’s life and my search for him.

It’s thrilling that Tom Oppenheim and I are continuing the friendship and collaboration between my great-grandfather and his grandfather that started in 1891.
