Musical tells story of Jewish singer during rise of Nazis


The Youngstown Area Jewish Federation will present “Club Gelbe Stern,” a musical in one act, at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Jewish Community Center of Youngstown, 505 Gypsy Lane.

Set in 1933 Berlin, “Club Gelbe Stern” tells the story of Erika Stern, a fictional Jewish chanteuse living and performing in Berlin as the Nazis rise to power.

Stern is provocative, feisty and determined to give a magnificent performance. “Club Gelbe Stern” is a cabaret within a play, offering a glimpse of what it may have been like for Jewish performers in the final days of the Weimar Republic.

The cost is $15 (includes dinner). To register, go to
