The year's biggest party turns one small "shtetl" upside-down.

There is a fabled shtetl (village) in Eastern Europe where everyone's a tailor. When Purim (the Jewish holiday of masquerades_ comes each year, they present a colorful pageant, the fruit of months of hard work. Dressed in modern-day garb, they "become" the characters in the biblical comedy of errors preserved in the Megilleh (scroll) of Esther, Queen of Persia.

The head tailor (Michael Schneider) is drunken Emperor Xerxes, the head Mafioso (Shlomo Bar-Aba - Fictitious Marriage) is evil Prime Minister Haman, and the village beauty (Nitza Shaul - Dr. Who, Hill Halfon) is lovely Queen Esther. But this year the story merges so completely with village life that soon no one can tell reality from legend, and the village becomes a comic mirror of the Megilleh.

Adapted from a beloved Yiddish musical play by Itzik Manger, in the style of Fiddler On The Roof, this magical, colorful production, filled with joyful Yiddish hit songs, is a delight at holiday time and for year-round fun. (Ha-Megillah, a.k.a. Ha-Megilla '83, Israel 1983, Comedy).
