Once the darling of the Yiddish Theatre in pre-war Poland, now a grandmother in New York City, Bubbie has had quite a life. But what will it all mean if she can't pass on her stories to the next generation? Though her granddaughter is enchanted by her tales, her daughter Red will do anything to keep from looking back. A fiercely funny and deeply moving new musical that spans three generations, THE PEOPLE IN THE PICTURE celebrates the importance of learning from our past, and the power of laughter.
The creative team includes Paul Gemignani (Musical Direction), Michael Starobin (Orchestrations), Andy Blankenbuehler (Musical Staging), Riccardo Hernandez (Sets), Ann Hould-Ward (Costumes), James F. Ingalls (Lights), Dan Moses Schreier (Sound), Elaine J. McCarthy (Projections), Paul Huntley (Hair & Wigs) & Angelina Avallone (Make-up).
