As our run of After the Revolution goes into its final weekend of performances, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate and share with you some of the wonderful “Beyond the Stage” programming we’ve put forth during our run. We’ve had in-depth conversations with members of our cast and creative team, a visit from two of the real-life people who inspired characters in the play, panels sponsored by inspired Jewish publications, and of course a wide range of scholars and experts leading us in discussion.
Video highlights from each of our Sunday panels are soon going to posted here and will include:
Post-Show Discussion: Family Politics, Onstage and Off, Sept. 22
This discussion featured Andrei Joseph, playwright Amy Herzog’s uncle and inspiration for the character Ben Joseph, and Pam Rogers, a progressive advocate of more than 40 years.
A Lilith Salon and Post Show Discussion: Family Secrets, Sept. 28 & 29
Together with our newest partner, Lilith Magazine, we hosted a weekend of engaging conversation. A free-flowing, intimate salon was followed the next day by a discussion moderated by Lilith editor in chief Susan Weidman Schneider. Other panelists included noted George Washington University professors Michelle Brafman, Fran Buntman, Faye Moskowitz and Gayle Wald.
If you’ve attended any of our Beyond the Stage programming during After the Revolution (a full list, encompassing much more than the events we’ve listed in this post, can be viewed here), we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments. If you haven’t gotten a chance yet, you still have one more opportunity!
Please join us at 5pm on Sunday, Oct. 6 for a post-show discussion with our partner, The Jewish Daily Forward: Radicals and Revolutionaries: The Shifting Jewish Left. The panel will feature executive director of The Forward Samuel Norich and historian Michael Kazin.
