Knock, Knock. Who's There? A Passover Play

The JTS Theater Project presents Knock Knock. Who's There?, a theatrical exploration of Passover through the ages.

Using music, movement, and Jewish texts, the students of The Jewish Theological Seminary have created an original piece of theater that explores one dark and scary night in Egypt, an unusal but beautiful ancient ritual in Jerusalem, and a typical night at an American seder table.

JTS students rehearse "Knock Knock. Who's There?"
