A comic play about getting serious--with live klezmer music
The Seattle Jewish Theater Company presents a delightful romantic comedy with a tasty Jewish flavor. The critically acclaimed play that became the hit Warner Bros film, is a Jewish story but its themes of love and family are universal. The production is one all ages can enjoy together.
Isabelle "Izzy" is a single young Jewish woman working in an upscale Manhattan bookstore who longs to be part of the intellectual literary scene. But her roots are on the Lower East Side where her old-fashioned grandmother (her "Bubbie") and a matchmaker are trying to fix her up with Sam, a quiet young man who runs a pickle store in the neighborhood. The conflict is resolved with a generous dose of humor, affection, and wisdom.
The performance, which is directed by SJTC artistic director Art Feinglass, will be followed by a Q&A with the director and cast. Live Klezmer music will be provided by Talia Toni Marcus.
Proceeds of the performance benefit the programs and offerings of Kol HaNeshamah, West Seattle's Progressive Synagogue Community.
