About the show

National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene presents one of the most popular operettas of the Roaring Twenties about a beautiful young woman named Goldele. Presented in Yiddish with English and Russian supertitles. More…

Goldele was abandoned by her parents and raised by local innkeepers somewhere in the Russian Empire. After the town hears that the young lady has inherited her father’s fortune, she draws the attention of many would-be suitors. Goldele eventually finds her way to America, bringing various characters from her European shtetl with her, and sets about to find the man she will marry. After a successful run in 2015, Folksbiene brings back its revival for an encore run.

The pacing and enthusiasm never lag; despite the obvious theatrics, we becom...

"With a luscious, eclectic score and a deliriously frivolous libretto, it provides a time capsule of the popular Yiddish musical entertainment of its day...A lavish production with 20 actors, an orchestra of 14, attractive sets, colorful costumes, evocative choreography and skillful direction tha...
