Featuring Melissa Langdon

WJT presents the Canadian premiere of Caleen Sinette Jennings's Queen's Girl in the World as our first show back in the Berney Theatre in two years! Queens Girl in the World chronicles the misadventures of bright-eyed, brown-skinned Jacqueline Marie Butler, whose sudden transfer from a protective, middle-class late-1950s upbringing in Queens to a progressive, predominantly-Jewish private school in Greenwich Village, adds comical confusion to her already quizzical, fish-out-of-water adolescence. Lively and poignant—and punctuated with the irresistible sound of Motown—Queens Girl in the World tags along for a young woman’s journey of self-discovery, at the onset of Civil Rights-era social change.

Perhaps you’ve seen them floating over a Russian village? Partners in life and on canvas, Marc and Bella are immortalized as the picture of romance. But whilst on canvas they flew, in life they walked through some of the most devastating times in history. The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk traces this young couple as they navigate the Pogroms, the Russian Revolution, and each other. Their world comes to lie through a rich theatricality as fluid as Chagall’s paintings and woven throughout with music and dance inspired by Russian Jewish tradition. WJT be presenting The Flying Lover's of Vitebsk by Daniel Jamieson in an outdoor tent setting at the Asper Jewish Community Campus Field.
