The Long Anticipated Return …

After many months of radio-silence, I’ve resurfaced in the blogosphere …
… and I’ve got lots and lots to report!

First of all, many apologies to my followers… I’ve been remiss… mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!!  I’ve missed you to pieces…

Next up, I hope everyone will be come see me in The Adventures of Hershele Ostropolyer at The Baruch Performing Arts Center.  The Folksbiene Yiddish Theatre has revived last year’s off Broadway smash hit which stars Mike Burstyn in the title role – and I am thrilled to have joined this wonderful cast!  Visit Dani Marcus’ blog about our adventures backstage!  (beware Hershele, the Vampire Slayer…) Show schedule is on my calendar page with links to websites to buy tickets!

In other news:  Kids & Yiddish 2011 was a huge success way back in February!  We visited schools and community centers around the New York area, and hope to have more opportunities to perform in NYC and beyond!   Follow this link to find out how you can bring Kids & Yiddish to your community!

The Witches of Lublin has been having a wonderful life on NPR stations across the US and Canada!  Many thanks to creators Elizabeth Schwartz, Ellen Kushner and Yale Strom for their incredible tale of magical musicians, and to director Sue Zizza’s vision and efforts to get this beautiful piece On the Air.

Stay tuned… lots of travel, concerts and festivals coming up this Summer… I’ll be looking for you!

Anyway, I promise not to be a stranger… Joanne’ll never go away again!!
