From Klezmer to Broadway...
P 1985 Ephrayis Productions, LLC
Get ready for an explosive evening of entertainment as Naomi brings her energy, wit, charm, musicianship and great voice to the stage. From the shtetls of Eastern Europe, to the fun of Second Avenue’s Yiddish theatre and to the glitter of the Broadway musical, this evening of song and comedy “laughs and cries, bringing together yesterday and tomorrow” said Options magazine.
Brought to the United States by the Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, Klezmer music had a huge influence on the songwriters, jazz musicians, vaudeville performers, cabaret singers, and Broadway and movie musicals that later evolved. From “Klezmer to Broadway” mixes all those styles together and then adds yet another twist. . Since Naomi began her career in the international cafes of Greenwich Village and since Broadway shows are performed the world over, Naomi often intermingles her Broadway numbers with smatterings of other languages. The tunes of the Jewish songwriters have become international.
No matter what the style or what the language, Naomi Miller knows how to “put over a song” and offers her audiences a "wonderfully entertaining evening." So book your seat now for a fun filled journey.

"Thank you so much for coming to the JCC of Greater Rochester to perform your show, 'From Klezmer to Broadway.' As you saw we had a great audience who loved the show. Attendees praised your strong voice, great stage presence, enjoyable sense of humor, and commitment to celebrating Jewish culture and tradition in such a fun, accessible way. Many were particularly impressed with your command of so many languages, and loved the way you connected your love of languages with your love of Broadway. 'It was one of the best shows I've seen in a long time' one attendee said, and thanked his friend for encouraging him to attend. I can't thank you enough for coming to Rochester, and I look forward to working with you again." Joy Getnick, JCC Jewish Program Directorhere to add text.
