Lea Kalisch presents SHTETL CABARET, a night of Jewish entertainment and Yiddishkayt, delivered with young, zestful, sexy energy.
Lea gives tradition a facelift. Yiddish Theater, forgotten melodies, original songs, and mashups- from Rap to Rumba, Folk to Feminism, Lea blends styles and languages like a smoothie. She slips into different characters to make you laugh with one eye and cry with the other. You will meet her alter ego REBBETZIN LEA, so if you need a matchmaker, you better be there!
Accompanied on piano and accordion by Renaissance man Asher Denburg and Percussion.
