Exploring Jewish Voices

The ViewPoints presentation is part of the "Exploring Jewish Voices" series, a collaboration between MCT, Jewish Museum Milwaukee (JMM) and the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center (JCC).  During 2012-2013, MCT is producing three plays by prominent Jewish playwrights from different generations: A THOUSAND CLOWNS by Herb Gardner, COLLECTED STORIES by Donald Margulies and UNDERNEATH THE LINTEL by Glen Berger. MCT, JMM and the JCC decided this was an ideal opportunity to partner by providing unique, supplemental education offerings for all three productions, including pre-show ViewPoints presentations and "Jewish Community Ticket" performances.
