2011 IAJGS Conference: Update

I am pleased to announce that on Monday, August 15, DC2011 will offer a theater performance, performed by Theater J. Theater J is a professional theater company located in Washington, DC, founded to present works that "celebrate the distinctive urban voice and social vision that are part of the Jewish cultural legacy as a self-mission.

Theaters in DC are dark in August, so we have brought a highlight of the Theater J season to our conference hotel for conference attendees to enjoy. In an attempt to maintain the feel of the home stage performances, seating will be limited to 400. Tickets are $12 each.  

The Moscows of Nantucket 
By Sam Forman
This witty, smart, multi-generational family comedy, with moments of poignant self-revelation and awareness, takes place on a summer weekend at the parental home in Nantucket. Watch the fur fly as brothers play out old family dramas, mixed with contemporary angst, passion fueled by booze, compulsive Blackberry checking and disclosed secrets. Sam Forman's previous play was Helen Hayes Award-nominated, "The Rise and Fall of Annie Hall."

You will be able to purchase the tickets on the DC2011 registration web site soon.

Hope to see you there.
