Reviews

"Marvelously ambitious in scope, consolidating in one volume the vast and diverse elements of the Vilna Troupe's history. Caplan is an excellent storyteller, and clearly conveys the energy and excitement that characterized the Vilna Troupe at its best."
--Henry Bial, University of Kansas



"A highly enjoyable book that will be of interest to aficionados of Yiddish theater and others with an interest in the history of Yiddish culture. The Vilna Troupe's story is a great one, and Caplan tells is with verve and enthusiasm."
--Jeffrey Veidlinger, University of Michigan
