Wayne State University Press
will publish a book on the De-
troit Yiddish theater in September.
The book, "The Detroit Yiddish
Theater," by James Miller, covers
the period 1920 to 1937. Primarily
the story of the Yiddish stock
company of Abraham Littman, it
records a picture of the cultural
life of the Detroit Jewish com-
munity during the '20s and '30s. *
Miller, a scenic artist at the *
J. L. Hudson Co. and a parttime
instructor at Wayne State Univer-
sity, was the scenic artist .at the Jir
Yiddish Playhouse from 1924 to
1927. He is not Jewish.
In his book, Miller traces the
development of the Yiddish thea-
ter from its beginning in Romania
in 1876 until the eventual passing
of the professional Yiddish stage.
He tells the stories and assesses
the contributions of the Circle
Theater on Woodward Ave. and
finally of Littman's Peoples Thea-
ter until it closed in 1937.
