Review: JEWS, CHRISTIANS AND SCREWING STALIN Recounts a Brooklyn Family's Dysfunction Photo Review: JEWS, CHRISTIANS AND SCREWING STALIN Recounts a Brooklyn Family's Dysfunction, Humor and Ultimate Atonement on Rosh Hashanah
by Shari Barrett - Aug 22, 2018

Subtitled 'A Light Comedy About Dark Jews,' we meet Bubby as she prepares a much-too-salty matzo ball soup for Rosh Hashana dinner in a period-perfect kitchen as the center piece of a realistic two-story set designed by Joel Daavid in anticipation of her entire family gathering to celebrate the holiday. Even her son and grandson will be there, a special evening (she hopes) as the two have not spoken to each other in years. But after continuously forgetting to bring home the chicken for dinner, Joey's alcoholic father David finally shows up at the table, causing alliances to be challenged and hopefully, new beginnings to be forged. And leave it to Zayda to show up at just the right moments to forward the story and add his own insights into his family's history and character. Oy vey!

by Cara Joy David - Mar 2, 2018
