Beyond the Pale dedicated its last show of 2013 to remembering the Zayde of Jewish Punk, Lou Reed, who exited stage left the past fall. Meanwhile, thanks to a new graphic novel and upcoming film, Brian Epstein, the Gay Jewish manager of the Beatles unexpectedly steps ever more into the limelight in that most epic and near-tragic pop cultural story of our time. Finally, the oft-overlooked middle period of Chagall, when he was in exile in New York, returns to New York and audiences are now confronted with a singular case of Holocaust art that made the crucifixion its central symbol.
