The West Wing + Yiddish Theater

The West Wing and Yiddish Theater is not something that one expects to hear in the same sentence, let alone hear a joke about Yiddish Theater on The West Wing. But yet, in the season opening episode, "NSF Thurmont" (Episode 2T5001), Leo (John Spencer) makes a crack about how you need something, and a bunch of raised eyebrows and we can start a Yiddish Theater troupe. I will try to head back the to TIVO and figure out what the first thing was, though the 'raised eyebrows' I think where the key.

I would think the key to starting a Yiddish Theater troupe would be Yiddish, but I guess raised eyebrows are more important. (When I think of raised eyebrows I think of a Marx Brother, but they weren't Yiddish speakers.)

You need good plays. To quote Dora Wasserman:
If a play is good, Wasserman once said, "You will feel it. You don't need to understand the language on stage."
