In a post last Sunday, I mentioned the upcoming Habimah production at our synagogue. Tonight, as I mentioned then, was the first dress/tech rehearsal and it was a little rough as expected. But I can't resist sharing this picture:
In the script, this is Moses set down in New York in modern times. The beard makes him look more like Santa Claus; at least that's what some of the younger children thought. And the hair and beard are scheduled to be changed before opening night.
But look again. . .closely. Could it be? Is that really The Ancient One, Blessed be He? Maybe his kids knew what they were talking about when they gave him that title. More on the production after Sunday's first performance.
