From the producer of the acclaimed Off Broadway musical The Devil’s Music: The Life & Blues of Bessie Smith comes a new comedy a new comedy by Tom Dudzick about family, faith and adjusting to life’s surprises. “Miracle on South Division Street” opened at St Lukes Theatre on May 13, 2012 and closed July 29, 2012.
About the play: “Her neighborhood may be depressed but not Clara Nowak. She and her three grown children tend a shrine built to commemorate the miraculous vision her father had in his barbershop in 1942. Clara has never lost her faith even if her kids have their doubts. That is, not until a deathbed confession reveals a long-hidden family secret, and all hell — and hilarity — breaks loose on South Division Street.” (CLOSED)
“When a nice Catholic boy suggests that his sister add a jar of gefilte fish to the cheese, pepperoni and beer on her shopping list, you know something strange is going on. And why not? There’s a very strange family at the center of … the crowd-pleasing Tom Dudzick comedy.” – The New York Times
“Utterly delightful, while delivering a solid message on faith, the lack of it, why we believe what we believe, and how we can – or must – adjust to life’s surprises.” –Theatermania.com
