The Play of the Week: The World of Sholom Aleichem

The World of Sholom Aleichem was first broadcast on December 14, 1959, on David Susskind’s dramatic anthology program The Play of the Week. The acclaimed teleplay (adapted by Arnold Perl from his 1953 Off-Broadway play) was drawn from writer Sholom Aleichem’s touching tales of Jewish life in the ghettos of Eastern Europe. The broadcast featured several actors who had been blacklisted during the McCarthy Era—including Zero Mostel, Lee Grant, Jack Gilford, Morris Carnovsky, and Sam Levene—and proved to be one link in a chain of events that brought about the end of the blacklist.
 
Jim Brochu, who stars as Zero Mostel in the acclaimed new Off-Broadway show Zero Hour, and his special guest, Lee Grant, from the original broadcast of The World of Sholom Aleichem, will introduce the 105-minute film.
