Join Hillel at the College of Staten Island on Sunday, Oct. 22 in the Campus Center (Building 1C) Park Café for “After Annatevka” with author and Broadway star Alexandra Silber.
After playing both Hodel and most recently, Tzeitel on Broadway, acclaimed singer/actress Alexandra Silber wrote this sweeping historical novel in the grand tradition of Russian literature that imagines what happens to the characters of Fiddler on the Roof after the curtain falls.
The world knows well the tale of Tevye, the beloved Jewish dairyman from the shtetl Anatevka of Tsarist Russia. In stories originally written by Sholem Aleichem and then made world-famous in the celebrated musical Fiddler on the Roof, Tevye, his wife Golde, and their five daughters dealt with the outside influences that were encroaching upon their humble lives. However, what happened to those remarkable characters after the curtain fell? Ms. Silber will tell us about her novel, and also sing a bit for us. A continental
breakfast will be included. Tickets are $25 (free for students) with proceeds benefiting the programs of Hillel at CSI,.
