Louis Goldstein has written a tell-all family memoir. While it is a best-seller, his family claims that it isn't true. This uplifting and heartwarming, multi-generational musical explores the challenges and triumphs of three generations of an immigrant Jewish American family. This original musical reminds us that families are complicated, the truth is never clear, and forgiveness is our best hope.
The scenic design is by Alexander Woodward, with costume design by Maureen Freedman, lighting design by Andrew F. Griffin, and sound design by Ray Shilke. Sinai Tabak is the music director with casting by Michael Cassara. C. Renee Alexander and Stephanie Clark serve as stage managers.
