In Honor our Dear Molly
will open Sunday, July 31, 2022

On January 19, 1943, the Ladies' Welfare League of the Yiddish Theatrical Alliance (the mutual aid society for Yiddish actors and actresses) staged a gala performance in honor of Molly Picon's fifty years in the theatre.

During this evening, the first act of Molly's play, "Oy is dus a leben" was performed with Molly in the lead, and other actors did their part by appearing in some capacity during the program.

In this lovely, online exhibition, you will be able to see and read the contents of this evening's program.

You will also be able to see photographs of Molly Picon in a number of her most famous stage roles, and you will also be able to read a myriad of tributes to the wonderful and giving lady of the Yiddish stage.

You will surely enjoy visiting this exhibition!

The photo here is from a performance in English with Molly titled "Birdie."
