About the Show
Hannah and Sam are getting married and you are invited! As Klezmer legend Yale Strom and friends play live original music, Uncle Jerry stands to offer a very special toast for the bride and groom. Moved by the spirit of the moment, and the spirits he has consumed, Jerry’s toast is a tour de force one man performance of the most celebrated play in Yiddish literature, S. Ansky’s The Dybbuk.
Nationally renowned master actor and clown Ron Campbell (R. Buckminster Fuller: THE HISTORY (and Mystery) OF THE UNIVERSE) plays all 21 characters in this “Dybbuk.” The mystical story centers on a broken vow that results in a wandering spirit taking possession of a bride on her wedding day. Boundaries between the natural and supernatural worlds dissolve in this tale of powerful young love and spiritual possession.
You will find yourself in the spell of a Yiddish classic that is a humorous and horrific folk tale of wondrous meaning.
The REP's Associate Artistic Director and the Artistic Director of the Lipinsky Family San Diego Jewish Arts Festival.
