observing the Sabbath

Special To The Jewish Week

It may be largely a Jewish invention, but the theater in New York has never run on a Jewish schedule. Jewish theater artists have often had to choose between keeping the Sabbath and building a career on the stage, where weekend performances are not just the norm, but the box office bread and butter.

Now comes 24/6, the first theater company in New York that will not require its members to rehearse or perform on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons.

The 24/6 team: Yoni Oppenheim, Jesse Freedman and Avi Soroka.
