"Shepsel's Khasene"
(Shepsel's Wedding)


Abraham Littman ran the People's Theatre on Twelfth Street in Detroit, Michigan, for many years.

Here, from December 25-27 (perhaps 1931 or 1936?), the troupe of Misha Fiszon staged the play, "Shepsel's Wedding."

The company included Fiszon, Julius Adler, Max and Reizl (then Liberovska) Bozyk, Ben Bonus, Helen Blay, Zelda Gould, Harry Jordan, Leon Whiteman, Leah Naomi, and Solomon Krause.

It is also mentioned that on New Year's Eve they will be performing a large, happy program.
