Hot Date: This American Life

TO MAY 16 Jake Ehrenreich’s multimedia stage memoir A Jew Grows in Brooklyn was a smash hit in the heart of Broadway and has been playing to critical acclaim and standing ovations across the United States. Now, Ehrenreich brings his story to Toronto for its Canadian premiere. Join this U.S.-born son of Holocaust survivors as he navigates from adolescence through to adulthood, trying to conform to his vision of what it means to be a “real” American. Humorous and poignant, this true tale of discovery and acceptance will not only pull you into the author’s past, but also have you revisiting your own.
