Set in the Passover season, &quot;The Witches of Lublin,&quot; is directed by internationally acclaimed and&nbsp; award-winning Sue Zizza. Featuring haunting vocals and an original high energy klezmer score by Yale Strom, &quot;The Witches of Lublin,&quot; offers a glimpse into the lost Jewish women&#39;s lives of Eastern Europe.
