Theo Bickel and The Passover Story

The Praying Jew, Rabbi of Vitebsk by Marc Chagall

The Praying Jew, Rabbi of Vitebsk by Marc Chagall

Monday at 1:00 pm


Theodore Bickel was being modest when he said, “Professionally, I can count three or four separate existences.” He’s played Carnegie Hall as a folk singer, he created the role of Captain von Trapp in the Broadway premiere of The Sound of Music, and has played the role of Tevye more than 2,000 times in Fiddler on the Roof. Bickel has a film career spanning 50 years. He’s also a humorist, writer, and social activist.

“All too often arrogance accompanies strength, and we must never assume that justice is on the side of the strong. The use of power must always be accompanied by moral choice.”

It has become a WFMT tradition to celebrate Passover with Theo Bickel’s telling of The Passover Story, a production with the ensemble Western Wind. The program includes Klezmer improvisations, Sephardic songs, Hebrew folk music, and classical liturgical music. Join WFMT for The Passover Story starring Theodore Bickel on Monday at 1:00 pm.
