Oct 4, 2018 - Nov 18, 2018
The 11th annual Neustadt JAAMM (Jewish arts, authors, movies and music) Festival will be presented at the Mizel Arts and Culture Center at the Staenberg-Loup Jewish Community Center starting October 4th and running through November 18th, 2018.
This year’s JAAMM Festival offers a diverse array of cultural events for families, young people and adults. Highlights include a family concert by Jewish rock star, Rick Recht, a keynote presentation by Bryan Fogel, winner of the 2018 Academy Award for Best Documentary for “Icarus” (a compelling look at doping in professional sports), and a concert by Grammy nominated clarinetist David Krakauer and pianist, Kathleen Tagg in “Voyages,” a journey across cultures. Other notable events include presentations by several celebrated authors such as Mike Reiss, the longest writer on the television show, “The Simpsons,” who wrote the book "Springfield Confidential," a humorous look at the making of the 30-year old hit show. There will also be a lecture by author/CNN commentator and viral TED Talk sensation, Sally Kohn. The festival is also hosting artistic events: Denver’s own Wonderbound Dance Company and two fully-staged plays presented by Theatre Or and Cherry Creek Theatre Company. Many months of planning went into making this a one-of-a-kind arts extravaganza for the entire Front Range community.
