The glory days of the Yiddish stage are brought to life in this funny saga of a legendary theatrical family, the Bursteins. Arriving in New York in 1924, Pesach’ke Burstein, the dancing-singing comedian, quickly became a leading figure in the Golden Era of Yiddish theater. Smoothly incorporating rare archival footage and interviews with Yiddish stage veterans, this tightly edited, briskly paced documentary is as richly bittersweet – filled with laughter and tears, schmaltz and grit – as the Yiddish theater itself. Released in 2000, 85 minutes.
