New York City's Own Borscht Belt

Yiddish Theater: A Love Story, a new documentary about New York’s Yiddish theater scene, will premiere tonight at the Pioneer Theater. View the trailer here.

The New York Sun reports:

Most of “Yiddish Theater: A Love Story,” which takes place over the course of a week and opens today, was shot on a camcorder because he was on vacation in New York at the time.

Occassionally, the haste with which Mr. Katzir obtained his footage is all too apparent, but his elegy is tinged with humor, and a countdown narrative adds drama.
