Hanna and the Moonlit Dress is back in NYC to kick off the New Year following the first North American tour, making stops in Houston, Baltimore, Toronto and Detroit.
Hanna and the Moonlit Dress is an interactive musical revealing the magic of a good deed, based on the classic Israeli tale "Hanna's Sabbath Dress" by Itzhak Schweiger-Dmi'el, adapted for the stage by Yoav Gal and Ronit Muszkatblit.
Overjoyed with her new dress, Hanna runs to show it to her friends: Zuzi the dog and Edna the cow. Little does she know what a meaningful adventure awaits her...
"Based on Itzhak Schweiger-Dmi'el's classic tale, this interactive musical tells the story of a young girl who helps a coal miner and ends up with black spots all over her new Shabbat dress (a gift from her mother). Little does she know she'll be rewarded for her kindness." - Time Out New York
Hanna and the Moonlit Dress is a delightful musical revealing the mysterious power of good deeds. Developed at the 14th Street Y and LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture, Hanna's story brings new Jewish / Israeli culture to life.
This magical interactive journey with beautiful special effects, live music, and set created by the audience transports children into Hanna's enchanted world. Recommended for ages 2-8. (15 minute workshop and 40 minutes show with no intermission)
"Hanna and the Moonlit Dress Provides an Alternative Holiday Experience...delightful and inspiring....a good exploration of a religious tradition of the non-Christmas variety."

"Beautifully, visually done; the idea of cutouts, and everything being white, and made out of paper, it's really magical."
- Adi Ezroni, Israeli TV star and film producer

LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture is a program of the 14th Street Y that uses classic Jewish texts to inspire the creation of art, dialogue and study.
Each year, The Theater at the 14th Street Y presents the residency program LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture. The goal is to support Jewish art and culture by providing the space, time, and resources needed to create new work. At the core of LABA's mission is the belief that classical Jewish text study can and should be a source of inspiration and creativity for contemporary culture-makers and thinkers. All of the public art created through LABA aims to transcend cultural and social borders by bringing to light the universal themes and questions that our artists encounter through their engagement with Jewish thought.
