* "The National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene" is a professional theater company which produces both Yiddish plays and plays translated into Yiddish, founded in New York City's Lower East side in 1915 by the Yiddish cultural organization the Worker's Circle (Workmen's Circle). It continues to this day, and is considering both the oldest consecutively producing Yiddish theater company in the United States, as well as the oldest consecutively producing theater of any kind in the U.S.
