The Cameri presents: A musical about Hava Yaari Israel today

2021-10-25T05:37:20.683Z

The murder case that shook Israel in the 1980s becomes a musical starring Mia Dagan as Hava Yaari and Irit Frank as Aviva Granot • "It's a kind of Israeli 'Chicago'," says Kaplan



In the 1980s, the Hava Yaari affair shocked the country.

The wife of journalist Ehud Yaari was convicted of the murder of American tourist Mela Malavsky.

This, after Shaari and her friend Aviva Granot stole money from Malavsky's account.

Now this episode arrives at the Cameri Theater in a musical version: "Eve and I".

The play and the hymns were written by Yami Whistler (the entertainment band), the director is Noa Raban and the main roles are starring Mia Dagan and Irit Kaplan.

Kaplan returns to the stage after recovering from Corona.

An entire country followed her as she was hospitalized in critical condition and called on everyone to go get vaccinated.

"It was stressful and scary," she says.

"I have an autoimmune disease that broke out in me a few years ago and faded, so I was afraid to get vaccinated. Then I got sick in Corona. There was a night in a house I did not breathe. I realized it could get worse and I went to hospital. I was hospitalized for six days "It took me a little longer to get stronger. I really came back to myself only about a month ago, when I went back to fitness training and theater. I came back to life."

Are there any side effects left?

"There is a sudden fatigue in the middle of the day. It is not an ordinary fatigue that suddenly comes to you, it is as if the whole body is flowing down, all the energy is going down."

Books about the musical.

"I will play Aviva Granot. This musical is a kind of Israeli 'Chicago' (the Broadway musical 'Chicago' also deals with the murder case - MK).

There are many musicals that tell a story, and they are not just show-offs, sequins and glam.

When Hava Yaari's affair exploded, I was a girl, and I was shocked by it.

From then until today I have seen and read every interview with Aviva Granot, even before I knew I was going to play her.

I'm terribly attracted to women's criminals, it's fascinating. "

Mia Dagan will play Hava Yaari.

"I think this is the first time that an Israeli musical comes up with a true story that happened here and turned the country upside down," she says.

"It's a fascinating story about two completely normative women, with no criminal record, who found themselves murderers. I did research on the affair, I read a lot, it really was a sensation. On Broadway and the West End in London there are quite a few dark and critical musicals."

The musical will be staged as part of the Cameri Theater's new repertoire, which includes several more new productions, including an adaptation of Meir Shalev's novel "Several Days";

Dana Modan's first play called "Bull", which deals with a love story between two men and a woman who all three live together;

A musical written by Gitit Fischer ("This and That", "The Massacre") and a song by Reuven, called "Caps", which deals with an affair between two high school students;

An adaptation by Itai Tiran for Chekhov's Uncle Vanya;

Reworking to "Oedipus";

The play "Hefetz" by Hanoch Levin, starring Odia Koren and Dvir Bendek;

The classic play "The Death of an Agent" by Arthur Miller, starring Rami Baruch and directed by Yair Sherman;

"White Night", directed by Tamar Keinan and starring Ruth Asarsai and Vichy Golan, which deals with police racism against members of the Ethiopian community, and more.
