The three graces of Scheiny’s All Star Yiddish Revue offer a program for more intimate venues.
Yiddish theater, traditional klezmer favorites, shtik.

Deborah “Scheiny“ Gzesh

Deborah “Scheiny“ Gzesh

Vocals

Singer, actress, producer, teacher and of course, Jewish mother. A native of Chicago’s South Side, subjected to a rainbow of musical influences and languages, Deborah began as a star struck, wide eyed student of the performing arts at an early age. She has trained in improvisational theater at Chicago’s reknowned Second City, dance, theater and music studies in New York and Chicago and looks back on decades of stage experience in the USA and Europe (won’t say how many). Scheiny is looking forward to a few more years of entertaining audiences and most of all herself!

Martina Cizek

Saxophone

Freelance musician and sound technician with klezmer “chops”. Born and raised in Vienna, Martina plays and composes music for theater, film, radio and dance projects in Austria and around the world. She was a steady member of the Austrian Yiddish music group “Gojim”. At nearly the opposite end of the music spectrum, she is an enthusiastic interpreter of the music of Ernst Krenek!
