TheatreWorks' "Brooklyn Boy" at Lucie Stern

Original post made by Enoch Choi, Crescent Park, on Jul 26, 2006

Brooklyn Boy successfully brought me back to reminescing about my parents influence on my beliefs, behaviors and peculiarities. It shared the angst of family dynamics, pulling on your heartstrings without being saccharine. The situations transcended jewishness, without robbing me of the delight of seeing a glimpse of the intimacy afforded jewish customs. The show succeeds where the protagonist can't -- crafting a story beyond his experience, calling back to all of our own.
