Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, founded in 1915, pays homage to Senesh: a young woman who escaped Hungary in 1939 only to be murdered there, five years later, while on a courageous rescue mission to save Jews from the Nazis. Written and directed by David Schechter, this solo piece stars Lexi Rabadi and includes poems and diaries by Senesh herself (translated by Marta Cohn and Peter Hay) and music by Steven Lutvak.
