Soul to Soul, the electrifying and emotionally captivating theatrical concert that explores the parallels of African American and Jewish history takes the stage this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend. Presented by the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (NYTF), Soul to Soul will include for the first time the participation of Oscar- and Grammy-nominated IMPACT Repertory Theatre. The annual concert will play on Sunday, January 19, 2pm, Off Broadway at the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, Edmond J. Safra Plaza, 36 Battery Place, NYC. Soul to Soul -which traditionally sells out- follows the experiences of two minority peoples and their paths to America's promise of freedom - overcoming segregation, prejudice, and economic hardship. The concert portrays stirring songs in Yiddish and in English, culminating in a high-energy collection of enthralling music, celebrating the historic partnership between the African American and Jewish people during the Civil Rights Era. 'Whatever language we express ourselves in, whether we tell our stories in a house of worship, school, library, community center, or theater, and whether we adhere to tradition or embrace the modern world, we will stand as one against hatred and not remain silent. We welcome anyone who wishes to stand with us in this resurgent climate of division to join us in celebration and in unity.'
