A WORLD APART
Through letters lost and found, this one-woman show finds a daughter exploring her family’s parallel lives during WW2 on both sides of the ocean, featuring songs of the 1940’s from America and abroad.
When my parents died in 2010, within 3 weeks of each other, I found hundreds of over-the-top love letters that they wrote over their seventy year marriage. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to embody their early innocence and dreams juxtaposed with the struggles of my relatives in the Warsaw Ghetto.
