Todie and the Miser

Lorie Wolf: “Todie and the Miser”

Sunday September 2, 5pm, Studio Theatre, FREE

Join Shrewd Todie, the town’s ne’er-do-well, as he teaches Lyzer the Miser, the stingiest, cheapest man in the shtetl, a lesson about generosity that he’ll never forget! This classic folk tale as retold by Isaac Bashevis Singer in his book “Stories for Children” comes to life on stage with lots of laughs, featuring actors Geoff Kolomayz and Steve Jay and live klezmer music. Lorie Wolf is an accomplished music educator and performer, known best for her work with the Sisters of Sheynville, The Lithuanian Empire, the Dull-Eyed Llamas, and various other Toronto jazz and world music acts. Her current children’s production is a follow-up to her hit musical theatre interpretation of I.B. Singer’s Mazel and Shlimazel, which premiered at the 2010 Ashkenaz Festival and was subsequently featured in the Toronto FringeKids! Festival. Recommended for ages 6-12.
