Bryna Wasserman ~ Assignment

250-word write-up on Bryna Wasserman

Sikander Ziad Hashmi
Jour 201, Concordia University

Bryna Wasserman is the artistic director of the Saidye Bronfman Centre Theatre and the Yiddish Theatre, both located in Montreal. Born in Vienna in 1948, she immigrated to Canada at the age of two with her mother Dora Wasserman (known as the “Grande Dame of Montréal Theatre”), her father Sam, and elder sister Ella.

Wasserman grew up watching her mother foster Canada’s only Yiddish theatre. She left Canada for New York in the late 1960s, where she studied theatre at New York University’s Tisch School of Fine Arts. There she earned both undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Her talent took her to a number of theatres including the Vivian Beaumont at Lincoln Centre, Mercer Street, Vancouver Opera House, and American Place.

While in New York City, she directed The Karl Marx Play, The Architect and the Emperor of Assyria and The House of Bernarda Alba among others.

In 1996, she began directing the Yiddish Theatre in Montreal. At around the same time, her mother suffered a stroke and Wasserman assumed her mother’s responsibilities at the theatre.

Bryna Wasserman was offered the post of artistic director of the English theatre in 1998, which she accepted. She holds the position to this day.

Since becoming artistic director, Wasserman has received a number of distinctive honours such as the Masque, MECCA, and Montreal English Critics Circle Awards. She was awarded the former two for her English theatre productions and the latter for the Yiddish Theatre's production of The Great Houdini and the Threepenny Opera.

Every time I run "Malwarebytes" or "Spybot Search and Destroy" or my "Mcafee virus scan" in SAFE MODE it goes so far after finding "ErrorSmart" Malware then gives me Blue screen of Death. In normal mode they find the virus and they either wont delete and remove or they freeze up: This is what I get on "Spybot Search and Destroy" Company: Product: ErrorSmart Threat: Malware Description ErrorSmart claims to be an antispyware solution. When the user scans his computer with ErrorSmart hundreds of alleged problems will be found. If the user wants to fix this misidentified threads he has to purchase a licence. ErrorSmart is in close relation to SpywareBOT, AdwareAlert and other malicious software. When I use google and try to go onto websites I get redirected to Anti-virus software advertisements.. and Fake Virus scans. [url=]santoramaa[/url]
