Doug Lipman reveals the humanity of Jewish stories to audiences of all backgrounds. He has a passion for Jewish mystical stories, Jewish folktales, and original Jewish stories. He has shared this passion with adults and children from New York to New Zealand and beyond - adding 12-string guitar, button accordion, and flute to many of his performances. Doug, an award-winning author and recording artist, has performed his two-act "The Soul of Hope" on three continents. The Boston Globe called it "a fascinating story of Jewish spirit and myth...a Hasidic tale about combating despair, finding hope, and transforming the world." Other programs include: - "The Ballad of Mauthausen: a Holocaust Program of Stories and Songs" - "Now We Are Free: Stories and Songs of Freedom for Passover." - "One Little Candle: Participation Stories and Songs for Hanukkah" The pre-eminent storytelling coach in the U.S., Doug has trained countless performers, educators, and other professionals in the timeless art of Jewish storytelling.
