I adapted and directed two staged readings of Jewish folk and fairy tales from around the world. They were performed in 2014 at the Palo Alto Jewish Community Center in California.
“A Bite of Joy” was a staged play showcasing readings of Jewish folk and fairy tales from around the world. It was a recreation of an East European wedding, complete with a badkin,(a wedding jester.) In addition, another ten tales were read aloud in this performance.

The second, “A Slice of Wry,” contained ten tales, using head costumes and props. Bradley Davis performed on the clarinet.
