Cuillo Center: A Jew Grows in Brooklyn [1 review]

Jake Ehrenreich's one-man show A Jew Grows in Brooklyn has been wandering around South Florida for several months, and settles West Palm Beach's Cuillo Center for the next 7 weeks. It runs through April 5, 2009.

Kevin D. Thompson reviews for the Palm Beach Post:

The last time the show was here in 2008, it sold out for 17 consecutive weeks.

It's easy to understand why.

For starters, Ehrenreich is a wonderful storyteller. He talks in a relaxed, easygoing manner, almost like a kindly grandfather. It also helps that the first-generation immigrant story Ehrenreich is telling about his Holocaust survivor parents and his desire to be considered an "all-American regular inner-city kid" growing up is engaging, poignant and, at times, hilarious.
