Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Refreshing, Clever

See it if you would enjoy learning of the challenges and joys of young Jewish women in today's society. Good vignettes from various backgrounds.

Don't see it if you are looking for a play with a story. This is more performance art based on true experiences. Some talk is fast and soft thereby unheard.

Complex, Varied, Informational, Beautiful ensemble work, Lacks depth

See it if a program of well choreographed singing, dancing & spitfire factoids is your kind of evening. The young, attractive performers work hard.

Don't see it if you expect deep insight or revelations. The script is offers a lot of information about Judaism in all its forms but lacks intimacy.

"In just 75 minutes, the Jewish Women Project's 'Between the Threads' reveals a treasure trove of Jewish culture, lore, feminine wisdom and history. The seven women who together have written and staged 'Between the Threads' have created a tight-knit work full of love, drama, humor and truth, a tapestry of interwoven wisdom tapping into the experiences of all the women involved."

"Honest and unflinching...It was all beautifully written, sometimes very raw, sometimes hopeful, even humorous. The six women were a perfect ensemble, working together seamlessly and almost as one being on the stage. The abstract movement and violin music added wonderfully to the piece...The two paired brilliantly with the stories, varying themselves in tone and emotion...A piece of theatre that truly used the form to its utmost potential."

"Superb...The women make direct eye contact with the audience, reaching out for catharsis, and it’s easy to respond to them as they lay their feelings bare with humor and intelligence. In some way they recall Tevye's daugthers...trying to find their place in Judaism and the world outside. It’s no simple task; it might be a matrilineal religion, but it’s still men who call the shots..The women are joyous and happy even as they grapple with disturbing aspects of their religion."
