Another Purim, Another Spiel…

Back by popular demand: Having set all of North Adams talking a year ago about the nuances of their acting chops in last year’s Purimspiel at Congregation Beth Israel, the team of Cruse & Sedarbaum reprised the roles of Queens Vashti and Esther last Saturday at this year’s version of the same dramatic saga.

Full credit for our glamour quotient must go to our faithful costumer Cathy Groves (although I myself claim styling credit for Queen Esther’s radical cardboard-flip hairstyle).

The charming portrait of the show’s two queens (and I use the term in the royalty sense, you wiseacres) as well as the production shots below were snapped by Len "Doc" Radin, director of Drury High School’s award-winning Drury Drama Team. To see all of Doc’s 2007 Purimspiel photos, click here.

    I got this link from my father. I am reading this at the tutoring center at Queensborough Community College as I wait for my stduents to show up for my office hours (I am not holding my breath.) I aksed my father if the cute little doggie was actually Jonah or another little kid dressed up in a really super costme. The Purimspeil looks great!
