Rehearsals Begin For Hester Street

Last week, we began rehearsals for our much-anticipated world premiere, Hester Street, the adaptation of the beloved 1975 film Hester Street by Joan Micklin Silver.

The company and friends of Theater J gathered to hear a first read-through from an outstanding cast. There were the small gasps, moments of laughter, and of course brief pauses to wipe a tear.

The award-winning Broadway director Oliver Butler directs this timeless story, produced in association with Michael Rabinowitz and Ira Deutchman.

Enjoy these images from our first day of rehearsal – and don’t forget to book your tickets for an unforgettable evening. Let Hester Street shine new light on a deeply familiar human experience.
