The Melting Pot is a play by Israel Zangwill, first staged in 1908. David Quixano has survived a pogrom, which killed his mother and sister, and he wishes to forget this horrible event.

Israel Zangwill (1864 – 1926) is remembered as Anglo Jewry’s renowned novelist and leader of the Jewish Territorial Organization. However, less is known about his considerable achievement as a playwright on the West End and Broadway. In The Melting Pot, the Jewish violinist hero eloquently champions the United States as the crucible in which persecuted refugees like himself, a survivor of the Kishineff Pogrom, will leave behind the inter-ethnic enmities endemic to their European origins and melt into one prejudice-free people. The success of the production turned its title into a metaphor for the American immigrant experience.

Israel Zangwill’s play The Melting Pot opened in Washington, . Set in New York in the early 20th century, the play is a loose adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, chronicling a tumultuous love affair between two Russian immigrants: David Quixano, a Jewish composer, and Vera Revendal, a settlement house worker and the daughter of an antiSemitic Russian aristocrat. The play offers a grand vision of America as a dynamic process of ethnic and racial amalgamation

In his historic play The Melting Pot, Israel Zangwill (1864-1926) introduced into our discourse a potent metaphor that for nearly a hundred years has served as a key definition of the United States. The play, enthusiastically espoused by President Theodore Roosevelt, to whom it was dedicated, offered a grand vision of America as a dynamic process of ethnic and racial amalgamation. By his own admission, The Melting Pot grew out of Zangwill's intense involvement in issues of Jewish immigration and resettlement and was grounded in his interpretation of Jewish history.

Zangwill, Anglo Jewry's most renowned writer, began writing seriously for the stage in the late 1890s. At the time, the negative stereotype of the so-called Stage Jew was still deeply entrenched in the theatrical mainstream, so much so that Jewish playwrights writing for the English-language stage avoided altogether the portrayal of Jewish life. Zangwill shattered this silence in 1899 with the American premiere of Children of the Ghetto-his first full-length drama, and the first English-language play devoted in its entirety to the depiction of Jewish life in an authentic and positive fashion. The play's groundbreaking production drew tremendous attention and generated heated debates, but since the script was never published, the memory of the passions it generated dimmed, and its whereabouts eventually became unknown. After more than a century, theater historian Edna Nahshon has discovered the original manuscript of this milestone text, as well as that of another unpublished Zangwill play, The King of Schnorrers, and the original version of The Melting Pot. Nahshon brings these three works together in print for the first time in From the Ghetto to the Melting Pot.

Edna Nahshon's in-depth introduction to this volume includes a biography of Israel Zangwill that especially pertains to these works and situates them within the Anglo-American theater of the time. The essays preceding each play provide rich and hitherto unknown information on the scripts, their stage productions, and their popular and critical reception. While some issues addressed in From the Ghetto to the Melting Pot are uniquely Jewish, others are universal and typical of the negotiation of self-presentation by ethnic and minority groups, particularly within the American experience.
