    Molly Picon, the darling of 2nd Ave. Yiddish theater, stars in this cross-dressing Yiddish musical shot on location in the shtetls of pre-war Poland. Yidl dons the clothes of a man to play in a traveling klezmer band so, god forbid, nobody should take advantage of her as she travels on the road. Here's Molly's lovely punim, bio, and a photo album: http://jwa.org/womenofvalor/picon
