Presented by the Pushcart Players with Storyteller Gerald Fierst, Tales from Around the World is a time of laughter, drama, participation, and surprises from a multicultural world.

Gerald Fierst is one of America‘s most acclaimed storytellers. As a performer, he has appeared throughout the US, Europe, and Asia, telling original stories, stories from his own Jewish tradition, and stories from world folklore; as a writer and teacher, he has worked for school systems and universities across the US, leading workshops for teachers and students in writing and performance.
