The Malenki Theater company doesn’t mess around. If you’re looking for light entertainment, something to pass an hour or two with some fun and mostly mindless offering, you’d best be looking elsewhere.

The troupe first set up for business in 1997, shortly after Igor Berezin, the company’s founder and director, made aliya from the former Soviet Union. Berezin took his first giant step for theatrical mankind when he decided that Malenki was going to work in Hebrew. That was despite the fact that the first bunch of actors were Russian speakers and that, at the time, Berezin himself had, at best, a sketchy command of Hebrew.
