Jake Ehrenreich's autobiographical 'comedy musical', A Jew Grows in Brooklyn comes to the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts (9501 Skokie Blvd., Skokie) for a limited one-week engagement this November. A Jew Grows in Brooklyn played for fifteen months to sold-out houses and broke box-office records, first at the historic Lamb's Theatre in the heart of Broadway's Time Square, and then for 15 weeks at the Cuillo Centre for the Arts in West Palm Beach Florida. Universal in its appeal, ABC-TV exclaimed A Jew Grows in Brooklyn "speaks to anyone hoping to live out the American Dream," and the New York Times raved "you don't have to be Jewish or Brooklynish!" This Rock N' Roll true story will premiere in Chicago at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie for a limited one-week engagement November 5 - 9, 2008.
