The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community series welcomes Annette Miller on her role in Shakespeare and Company's Sotto Voce.

This haunting work by the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, Nilo Cruz, explores the indelible power of memories and the resiliency of true love.  Sotto Voce's protagonist Bernadette Kahn, played by Annette Miller, finds healing through the art of the written word.

A passionate, Jewish-Cuban young man seeks out a famous, reclusive novelist who, decades earlier, was separated from her lover when he boarded the MS St. Louis, an ill-fated ship of Jewish refugees during World War II.

Acclaimed actor Annette Miller vividly portrays this remarkable woman. Ms. Miller and director Daniel Gidron are the same artistic team behind Shakespeare & Company's 2009 production of Golda's Balcony.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
