Review: ‘The Golden Bride’ Walks Down the Aisle Again (Review)
Author(s): Laura Collins-Hughes
Publication: New York Times
Date: 12/9/2015
Abstract: A farcical, tuneful romance that’s part old-fashioned musical comedy, part straight-up opera, “The Golden Bride” (“Di Goldene Kale”) is an immigrant fantasy that looks as fondly on Mother Russia as on Uncle Sam. With music by Joseph Rumshinsky, lyrics by Louis Gilrod and a libretto by Frieda Freiman — immigrants all — it was a hit when it opened in 1923. In a handsome new large-cast production, presented by the National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, it’s still deeply satisfying.
