TREASURE BIG APPLE CIRCUS FILES CHAPTER 11

The Big Apple Circus




New York, New York - The Big Apple Circus, a New York and national cultural treasure for nearly four decades, announced that it has filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.


During the bankruptcy case, the Big Apple Circus intends to continue operating some of its community programs, which may be transitioned to other suitable nonprofit organizations, and to sell certain of its assets. In the meantime, the bankruptcy filing preserves the opportunity to restart the Big Apple Circus' one-ring show, either with new financial support or through a sale of the circus to a buyer interested in doing so.


Since its founding in 1977, the Big Apple Circus has performed its annual one-ring show under the Big Top for millions of children, families, and fans of all ages and means, in its New York City home at Lincoln Center and on tour. Over the years, the nonprofit organization expanded its mission to include special performances for children who are blind, deaf, on the autism spectrum, and/or have other physical or cognitive disabilities, as well as a variety of community programs, like Clown Care®, which brings laughter and joy to aid the healing process of patients in leading pediatric hospitals nationwide.


In June, Big Apple Circus launched an emergency "Save the Circus" campaign with hopes to raise sufficient funds to begin production of a show for the 2016-2017 season. Despite receiving contributions from more than 1,400 donors, the Big Apple Circus fell short of its fundraising goal and made the difficult decision not to proceed with the upcoming performance season. The Circus determined that the best course of action to honor its mission and maximize value for its creditors was to commence a Chapter 11 case to effect an orderly wind down of the Circus' affairs.


"We are eternally grateful for the support provided by audiences and donors over almost 40 years, and to all of the artists, crew, staff, and Clown Doctors who have provided joy, wonder, and inspiration to so many. Thanks, Paul and Michael. And thanks to founding board chair Alan Slifka and to the amazing board members who are with us still," said Big Apple Circus executive director Will Maitland Weiss. "We are working to ensure that the spirit of the Big Apple Circus will live on."


Debevoise & Plimpton LLP is serving pro bono as Big Apple Circus' legal counsel in the bankruptcy case.

'KIDS & YIDDISH" @ NATIONAL YIDDISH THEATRE

Kids & Yiddish




NEW YORK -- To renew a cherished Hannukah tradition, National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (NYTF) will present "Kids & Yiddish," a musical theatrical funfest that teaches Yiddish to kids primarily through songs and song parodies. The show gleefully mixes Jewish folk traditions with popular culture and satirizes some of the latest fads on TV, all the while cleverly weaving in Yiddish words and phrases. A protean piece, which continually changes with the tides of pop music, TV and popular culture, it has been presented since 1991 as an annual event in the Hannukah season. The piece is written by Joanne Borts, a Broadway actress; Zalmen Mlotek, NYTF Artistic Director and an internationally recognized authority on Yiddish folk and theater music; and songwriter Menachim Mike Fox, son of the esteemed Yiddish poet Chaim Leib Fuchs. There will be one performance only this year, December 25 at 11:00 AM, at Edmond J. Safra Hall at Museum of Jewish Heritage, 36 Battery Place, Lower Manhattan.



"Kids & Yiddish" slyly insinuates mamaloschen ("mother's talk") into familiar elements of popular culture, like Top 40 tunes and the latest fads on TV, to teach kids about Yiddish language and culture. With a mix of original material and parodies, it introduces young theatergoers to the letters of the Yiddish alphabet, how to count in Yiddish and how to say the colors like your great-grandmother did. Song take-offs include "Sounds of Lamed," "Silly Vov Songs" (including "What’s Vov Got to Do With It?" and "All You Need Is Vov") and "We Will, We Will Hock You." Particularly delightful is a Yiddish comic take on Hannukah songs. Cultural references from high and low combine into a richly amusing and informative hot pot of fun. The experience won't feel pedagogical; it is a fun show in which kids are included and it feels natural to speak Yiddish. Parents delight in how cleverly the show appropriates rock, rap, klezmer and calypso and its delicious "grown up" references to Molly Picon, Zero Mostel and Howie Mandel.



The show was originally conceived in 1991 by Joanne Borts, Zalmen Mlotek, Menachem Mike Fox and the late Adrienne Cooper as a project of The Workman's Circle. It evolved into an annual show for the Hannukah season which has been performed in various venues. This year's show will be a concert version. The cast, in formation, will feature the show's authors--Joanne Borts, Zalmen Mlotek and Menachim Mike Fox--along with Jenny Romaine (of Circus Amok and Great Small Works), who will design the show with contributions from Tina Kinderman. Director/choreographer will be Borts and musical director will be Mlotek.



Reviewing "Kids & Yiddish" in 2006 at Manhattan JCC, The New York Times' Laurel Graeber declared, "It may be hard to imagine what the Village People have to do with the Chosen People. Or how the Swedish pop group Abba could facilitate the teaching of Yiddish. But the National Yiddish Theater - Folksbiene specializes in making connections (between Old World and New, Yiddish and English, and Jews and non-Jews), and does so hilariously in its annual holiday production." She continued, "The show is like a wacky borscht belt-style revue, but much hipper than anything your grandmother might have enjoyed."

Satirical songfest enables kids to learn Yiddish painlessly.

HANNA AND THE MOONLIT DRESS @ 14TH STREET Y

Case Watson




The Theater at the 14th Street Y presents Hanna and the Moonlit Dress as part of the Theater/Dance Series curated at The Theater at The 14th Street Y, 344 E. 14th Street, NYC from December 2-18, 2016 at 7:30pm. Performances: Fridays at 4pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 10am and noon. Tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for children, $35 for family (maximum of five members), and are available at www.14streety.org/tickets.


Hanna and the Moonlit Dress, based on Izhak Scheiger-Dmi'el's book and adapted for the stage by Ronit Muszkatblit and Yoav Gal, is a magical, interactive musical for children about the power of a good deed. Directed by Ronit Muszkatblit. Hanna is played by Case Watson and the Mother is played by Kate Mulberry. The Music Director is Peter Hodgson.


Young Hannah'le just wanted to help the coal miner carry his heavy sack of coal from the forest, but now--Oh No! Her new white dress is stained with black spots! How can Hanna go to dinner now? Won't Mama be upset? Perhaps the moon will come to Hanna's rescue with its magical light. Join Hanna and her friends, including Edna the cow, Zuzzi the dog, the Coalman and the Moon, in an interactive musical theater experience for children ages 2-8. Hanna helps a stranger, and in the process accidentally dirties her white dress, newly sewn by her mother for Shabbat. Her distress is relieved, however, when she discovers the magic of a good deed.


Children will help create the world of the play by crafting paper masks, costumes, and set pieces with the actors. The show is 50 minutes with no intermission.


'We want the children to learn that if you put out positive energy or a positive action, something good will come back to you. It's a simple story, this cycle, were the goodness that [Hanna] gives to the old man, comes back to her through the moon. It's a simple message, and there's the emphasis on play and draw, and that's why everything is made out of paper, to show that we can create a world, and a play, and a set, just from paper and glue and a black pen. Hanna does a good deed, and something good comes to her, and she shares it with her mom, and they spend time together. It really, for me, that sense of time together more than the religious thing. And it's good that you have a marker, one day a week for rest. If it's not a Saturday, if it's a Wednesday, I don't care. Take time for each-other," said Ronit Muszkatblit, Director of Hanna and Artistic Director of the 14th Street Y.


"With their creativity and spirit, children have the power to remake the world."
- The Jewish Week
