Written and Directed by Adina Katz
Musical Direction by Nick Burgess
Inspired by stories and songs from the Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre Community

A new DWYT original production!
At a lively cast party in Montreal, Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre actors reminisce about the good times and perform delicious numbers inspired by nostalgia and anecdotes about their favourite foods.

I Kid You Nosh!  is an original multilingual musical comedy, inspired by true stories from the Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre community. It’s all topped with a medley of known songs and a dash of vignettes related to the joy of Ashkenazi Jewish foods and its ties to culture, family, memories, and being together. 

Our DWYT players are talented performers, but their true characters really shine after the curtains close, and it’s time to sing, dance, kibitz, and schmooze it up. The production will be in Yiddish, English, and a sprinkle of French, Hebrew, and Ladino to taste.

With English supertitles.
