Jewish Theatre in Moscow May Be Repudiated As Government Institution

The possibility that the Jewish Theatre of Moscow will no longer be considered a government theatre and will be excluded from inclusion in the government’s budget looms up here. A delegation of friends of the Jewish Theatre visited the commissariat of education where it was informed that no definite action had yet been taken in the matter.

It was pointed out to the delegation, however, that the theatre is not considered sufficiently revolutionary because its repertoire does not satisfactorily execute its mission of educating the masses politically which a government theatre is supposed to do.
