Mikhl Yashinsky

Librettist Playwright Lyricist

I write plays, libretti, and lyrics; translate them into English, too; sometimes perform upon a stage. Once Joel Grey performed my Yiddish translation of "Give My Regards to Broadway" ("Git op mayn grus to brodvey") before a full house at the Minskoff Theatre, and my heart floated somewhere high above the crimson-seated auditorium, though my body stood behind him, my face a foolish grinning mask.
