Brunch and hear the artistic director of Theater J and then see that company's latest performance.

 

At noon in the DCJCC Bernstein Library, the group will meet for brunch.  Adam Immerwahr, Artistic Director of Theater J, will talk about "What to Look for When Watching a Play."

The group will then venture upstairs at 2 pm for Theater J's peformance of Everything Is Illuminated. The play is based on the best-selling novel by Jonathan Safran Foer and is a stunning and hilarious adaptation that tells the story of a young man who sets out to find the woman who might or might not have saved his grandfather. Accompanied by an old man haunted by memories of the war, an amorous dog named Sammy Davis, Jr., and a young Ukrainian translator who speaks in a sublimely butchered English, our character takes a quixotic journey into an unexpected past, where reality collides with fiction in a heart-stopping scene of extraordinary power. This is a highly anticipated East Coast premiere. Contact social-events@betmish.org to confirm your atttendance at the brunch and with any questions.
