Israel’s Cameri Theater Troupe Starts Playing in London in Hebrew

Israel’s Cameri Theater troupe presented a premier performance here last night of a musical in Hebrew to a packed Aldwych Theater and earned an enthusiastic reception from the first night audience and the critics.

The troupe, one of Israel’s leading theater groups, presented “King Solomon and the Cobbler,” based on a play by Sam Gronemann, a late Zionist leader, lawyer and leading playwright. Written in German, the musical was produced in Hebrew in a translation by the wellknown Israeli poet Nathan Alterman, with music by Alexander Argov and was seen by a half million persons in Israel.
