Jake Ehrenreich is bringing his smash Broadway hit, A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, to the Merage Jewish Community Center for two performances on Saturday and Sunday, March 16 and 17. The highly acclaimed show, which chronicles Jakes life, is an engaging, poignant and hilarious comedy musical about the search for identity and meaning.
From the streets of Brooklyn and struggle with his familys past, to the laughter and rebirth of Catskills summers, to his mother and sisters heartbreaking early Alzheimers disease, this tour de force performance is a delightful journey that speaks to anyone hoping to live out the American Dream.
Through stories, comedy and music, performed with multi-media video and photos including a classic rock medley (California Dreamin, Secret Agent Man, Sunshine of Your Love), a multi-instrumental version of Louis Primas Sing, Sing, Sing, and even a selection of Yiddish songs Jake mesmerizingly recreates his unforgettable journey of discovery and lessons learned. From the stoops of Brooklyn to Rock n Roll days--from the comedy and musical stages of the Catskills and Broadway to the bedsides of ailing parents and siblings, this show has a glow all its own and is touching, soulful, and laugh out loud funny.
