The show will be feature choreography by Wendy Seyb with musical direction by Don Kot. Moses Man will play from tonight, July 8, through July 13, 2015 at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street). BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast in rehearsal below!
Based on true story of writer Deborah Haber's parents, Kalman and Lily Haber, Moses Man powerfully portrays the indomitable spirit of survival as it recounts the true saga of a Holocaust survivor, chronicling his perilous nine-year journey throughout Europe, Cyprus, Palestine, and Africa before finally finding freedom and home in America. Moses Man, based on the historically significant implications of the displacement of those facing persecution during the Holocaust, also reflects the contemporary dilemmas faced by each of us, aiming to instigate consideration, conversation and education.
