Mike Burstyn as Al Jolson
Starting by his parents' side in the Yiddish theatre at age 7, Mike Burstyn starred in the national touring company of Jolson: The Musical. He first heard Jolson songs through his father's Yiddish versions of the singer's songs, but quickly developed his own appreciation of a wide range of music. With credits on Broadway, film and television; in the United States, Europe, and Israel; Mike Burstyn brought a unique perspective to the interpretation of a musical legend.
