Description
Co-Sponsored by Anita and Marc Abramowitz

Isaiah Sheffer was a man of literature, a man of music, a playwright and an actor. The founding artistic director of Symphony Space and host of Selected Shorts on public radio is lauded as all of these, as well as an innovator of Yiddish theater, beloved mentor and all-around “super intellect.” Catherine Tambini’s spirited documentary celebrates the life and genius of a man who inspired everyone from Leonard Nimoy to Stephen Colbert, both of whom appear among many others, touched by Sheffer’s enthusiasm and dedication, to remember him in this heartwarming portrait. —Neha Talreja
