…and a FREE Ticket Offer!
The Birthright Monologues Web page describes the show as “An evening of solo performances of monologues, spoken word and hip-hop exploring Jewish identity inspired by a 10-day trip through Israel.” Superbly directed by the talented Vanessa Hidary, of HBOâ€™s Def Poetry Jam – she’s the one that appears at the end of Tribe: The Film – the performers relate their own touching, poignant, often entertaining and sometimes funny Taglit Birthright Israel related stories. Those of you who have been on trips will be able to relate, and those of you who haven’t will understand what the fuss is all about while enjoying some remarkably high quality entertainment. The Birthright YouTube page is chock full of video-taped performances which you can view at your leisure. Below is Monologues in a Nutshell:
