NYTF opens its 101st season with Di Goldene Kale (The Golden Bride), first seen on stage in the Roaring 20s. In this operetta, Goldele, a poor girl from the shtetl, inherits a fortune from her estranged father and embarks on a mission to find both her long-lost mother and her husband-to-be. Joseph Rumshinsky's original score is performed by a full orchestra in this lavish production. The performance is in Yiddish with supertitles in English.

A free round-trip shuttle bus from Columbus Circle to performances of The Golden Bride is now available, courtesy of Campus Couch. Click here for details and bus reservation information >
