The Deal

A Jew Grows in Brooklyn

  • The play: a touring version of the one-mensch show by veteran Broadway actor Jake Ehrenreich, a first-generation Jewish American born and raised in Brooklyn
  • What to expect: an unapologetic celebration of Ehrenreich’s Jewish heritage, from a joyful rendition of “Meet the Mets” in Yiddish to a somber reflection on his parents’ status as Holocaust survivors
  • The press: When A Jew Grows in Brooklyn debuted on Broadway in 2006, the New York Times hailed Ehrenreich’s “strong, pleasant voice” and fine showmanship.

Bergen Performing Arts Center

In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
