NAP's 45th Anniversary: A Salute to Yiddish Theater Star Molly Picon with Diane Cypkin

Molly Picon (1898-1992) was the First Lady of the Yiddish Stage during its heyday in the 1920s and 1930s. In this hour-long presentation, part cabaret, part classroom, Diane Cypkin will trace the highlights of Molly’s lengthy career from the Yiddish stage to English-language films through songs popularized by Ms. Picon. Diane Cypkin is a Professor Emeritus in the Media, Communications, and Visual Arts Department of Dyson College of Arts & Sciences at Pace University. An expert on the Yiddish stage, Dr. Cypkin curated a well-received exhibition at Lincoln Center on Molly Picon. She was the Yiddish Theatre Consultant at the Museum of the City of New York and curated the highly successful exhibition, A Celebration: 100 Years of Yiddish Theatre in New York. She will be joined by pianist Lena Panfilova, a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory.
