A Jew Grows in Brooklyn 

When: Wed., April 27 2011

Writer, actor, and comedian Jake Ehrenreich's autobiographical play, A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, opens tonight at the Hanna Theater for seven performances through May 1. Fortunately, you need not be Jewish or Brooklynish to enjoy it. A 2006 smash hit in N.Y.C., the multimedia musical tells the story of the son of Holocaust survivors who wants nothing more than a slice of the American dream. Videos, photos, and a live band belting out everything from Louis Prima to the Mamas & the Papas keep A Jew from becoming just another coming-of-age tale. Instead, The New York Times called its story "funny ... touching ... and beautiful." See for yourself tonight at 7:30; ticket prices range from $10 to $42.50. Get them by phone at 216-241-6000 or order online at playhousesquare.com. The Hanna is at 2067 East 14th St. — Cicora
