'A Jew Grows in Brooklyn' plays at the Morris Museum’s Bickford Theatre

The Morris Museum on Sunday, March 13 will present the heartwarming comedy musical A Jew Grows in Brooklyn. Starring writer-performer Jake Ehrenreich (photo), the show will be held at 2 PM and 7 PM in the Bickford Theatre.          

A smash hit from the heart of Broadway, A Jew Grows in Brooklyn is an engaging, poignant and hilarious musical about the search for identity and meaning. Blending storytelling and comedy, music and images, A Jew Grows in Brooklyn chronicles Jake Ehrenreich’s life as the first American-born child of Holocaust survivors. From the stoops and streets of Brooklyn to the classic Rock ‘n’ Roll of his youth, from the laughter of an uproarious Catskills nightclub to the bedsides of ailing family members, Ehrenreich mesmerizingly recreates his unforgettable journey of discovery and lessons learned. 

Find out why The New York Times called A Jew Grows in Brooklyn "funny, touching and beautiful."
