A retelling of the story of Exodus with chant, gospel, rock and roll, masks and clever use of Julie Taymor’s early puppetry. “Children should find delight in the puppets . . . is one of (Swados) happier efforts and worthy of becoming a public theatre institution”.– N.Y. Daily News. This unusual show was originally produced (and later revived) during Passover at Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival Public Theatre.
Composed and Directed by Elizabeth Swados
Adapted from Texts by Elie Wiesel
