I think this is a very ahistorical take on Yiddish theater. Yiddish theater like Jewish culture in general after the Haskalah wasn't sui generis, it was engaged with the great literary non-Jewish movements of the time. GOD OF VENGEANCE has as much to do with Emile Zola and Naturalism as it does with Hassidism and Hassidic culture.
