"With theaters closed and ghost lights on, we are asking our community, we are asking Pittsburgh, to see the arts as something worthy of kedosha, something sacred and essential."
Written in the wake of the Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue shooting, The Golem of Pittsburgh is an adaptation of the traditional Jewish folktale of the golem. The Golem of Pittsburgh melds folklore and fantasy with reality and reflection on the ways we react to acts of hate.
