A performance of “The Dybbuk“ at what is now the Abrons Art Center on the Lower East Side.

Abrons, like the Folksbiene, was also founded in 1915; we will both be celebrating our centennials next year!

I scanned the picture from a 1926 edition of the play, so this performance must have taken place not long after the text originally appeared in 1914.
