"What If" in American Jewish History and Contemporary Jewish Life
 
Live Broadcast Begins at 7:30 p.m.
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( The Bernard Revel Graduate School for Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University)
The Bernard Revel Graduate School for Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Shown live on the Jewish Broadcast Service, this event will launch Professor Jeffrey S. Gurocks latest book, The Holocaust Averted: An Alternate History of American Jewry, 1938–1967 (Rutgers University Press).

The Holocaust Averted has already been lauded as a “provocative, path-breaking book… filled with familiar characters in unfamiliar and intriguing roles that is sure to challenge—and, quite possibly, to infuriate readers.”

This intriguing work considers what might have happened to the Jewish community in the United States if the Holocaust had never occurred and forces readers to contemplate how the road to acceptance and empowerment for todays American Jews could have been harder than it actually was.

Join the audience as Professor Gurock and Rabbi Golub explore many reasonable historical alternatives grounded in what is actually known about the tumultuous, catastrophic and climatic 30 years that bridge the beginnings of the Holocaust, the rise of the State of Israel and Israels triumph in the Six Day War, and what this novel approach to history tells about the real world that Jews live in today.

Book signing and collation to follow.

What critics have said:

“...combining the soul of a gospel singer with the musicianship of a jazz singer and the warm, chatty intimacy of a great cabareteuse. She can sing sweetly and softly and she can belt with the kind of power that you makes you respect her authority...Natalie Douglas is an artist well worth staying up late for.”
- Wall Street Journal

“...a set that not only showed off her range and flair for nuance, but also established once and for all that she is one of the few vocalists in cabaret who can sing just about anything.”
- Broadway World

“...by all accounts, one of the foremost cabaret artists today.”
- Theatre Pizzazz

“An artist of a much higher caliber.”
- Theatermania

“She is considered what Green Acres' Eva Gabor would call a shoosting star, a friendly, unimposing presence with a monstrous talent.“
- Next Magazine

…when she belts, she's got enough pipes to outfit a plumber's convention. The truth is... she's got everything.
- The NY Daily News

... Douglas' tone and timbre are unmistakable. Douglas has never been in better voice...
- ShowBusiness Weekly

“Douglas now sings with more power, support and-most importantly-unbridled joy than ever before...amazing.
- Show Business Weekly Online

“The roof shook as her voice echoed across the island of Manhattan. In a roller coaster of emotion, she rips into some rhythm and blues ballads that instantly recall a younger Nancy Wilson. A diva to be reckoned with.”
- Cabaret Hotline

A Hard Rain
 
A moving, colorful drama -The Stage
 
Venue: ( Theater For the New City)
Theater For the New City
Producer: ( Theater for the New City)
Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
“A Hard Rain” Explores the causes and effects of repression and marginalization.Mafia run bars, police corruption and virulent homophobia come under the spotlight in Jon Bradfield and Martin Hoopers poignant exploration of the circumstances leading up to the 1969 Stonewall riots, and the birth of the modern gay liberation movement.The drama is set not in the infamous Stonewall Inn, but a neighboring, Mafia run joint – a pressure cooker of desire, anger and thwarted hope. As the lid is whipped off were thrown into a subculture that is finally demanding recognition. Being underground is no longer enough as the characters struggle to find new ways to negotiate intimacy and ideas of community.Its always nice to see important historical events brought to life on stage but it can be hard to get the balance right between demonstrating your point and over loading the audience with information that they dont particularly want to know.A Hard Rain is well performed, well staged and laced with humor that perfectly balances out the serious subject matter, A Hard Rain is a fun night out that inadvertently teaches you about one of the most important gay rights movement this century has seen.Impactful, without being overly preachy or grave, the play celebrates the modern roots of queer culture without sidestepping the personal struggles and conflicts within it. In fact, it shows just how integral those conflicts were, and still are, to ushering in change and social progress. It brings the difficulties of personal tragedies and social prejudices to life and does something remarkable, by showing the strength and resilience of the humanspirit through these wonderfully unapologetic, vibrant characters.Against a backdrop of Mafia-funded illegal gay bars, homophobic laws and policecorruption, the habitual of the Stonewall Inn suddenly refused to accept another police raid and fought back. The Stonewall riots of 1969 marked the beginning of the gay liberation in the USA.
