George Eliot’s 19th Century novel ‘Daniel Deronda’ explores Judaism in British Victorian society L.A. Theatre Works will record a new adaptation for radio, podcast and online streaming March 15-19 at UCLA’s James Bridges Theater.
An LATW-commissioned, world premiere stage adaptation, by the BBC’s Kate McAll, of George Eliot’s 1876 novel exploring the place of Judaism in British Victorian society. Daniel Deronda is an intelligent, handsome young man who has been raised by his guardian, Sir Hugo Mallinger, but knows nothing of his true origins. Deronda's search to find his identity leads him into the world of 19th-century Zionism and the Jewish mystical tradition known as Kabbalah, a discovery that will alter the course of his life. Each of the five performances at UCLA’s state-of-the-art James Bridges Theater will be recorded live in front of an audience for future radio broadcast, distribution on CD, digital download and online streaming. L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series broadcasts weekly on public radio stations across the U.S. (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM) can be heard daily in China and around the world on the Radio Beijing Network can be downloaded as a podcast via iTunes and Wondery.com and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.
