A Jew Grows in Brooklyn

Published on Mar 29, 2012 by Parker Playhouse

A Jew Grows in Brooklyn is a “dazzling, funny and touching” (NY Times) comedy musical that has earned raves from critics and audiences across North America. From his family’s survival of the holocaust and adolescence in Brooklyn to the great days of the Catskills and his mother and two sisters’ heartbreaking early Alzheimer’s disease, the incomparable Jake Ehrenreich, backed by a live band, and unique multi-media production, create “one of the most touching, soulful, and laugh out loud shows you’ll ever see!” (Toronto Sun). The Miami Herald called it a “knockout!” and the Palm Beach Post called it “Engaging, poignant and hilarious. You don’t have to be Jewish or Brooklynish to enjoy this entertaining show!” The Sun Sentinel proclaimed “Ehrenreich would win over a symposium of Episcopal ministers from Boston!” and The Philadelphia Inquirer said it all –“What’s not to love? This is a universally appealing, uplifting treasure!”
