EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED
STARTS NOV 9, 2018
From the novel by Jonathan Safran Foer
Adapted by Simon Block | Directed By Tom Ross
Based on the best-selling, critically acclaimed novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, this stunning stage adaptation tells the story of a young Jewish-American writer (also named Jonathan Safran Foer) who sets out for Ukraine to find the woman who he believes saved his grandfather from the Nazis, and the town they wiped off the map. Jonathan’s tour guides are a pair of flamboyant Ukrainians, a grandfather and grandson with limited English skills and secrets of their own. As they travel into the unknown, along with the dog Sammy Davis Jr., Jr., they meet increasingly surreal characters, both fictional and real, as the past and present merge into an unforgettable journey.

After her kids dodge bullets at the local park, Lisa takes them to a Winter Solstice Carnival in the ritzy town where she grew up. Now she’s dodging a gang of PTA moms in Lululemon, a fire-breathing dragon and, worst of all, her father. Of course, no fairytale would be complete without a fairy godmother to help her sort through her parenting choices. See Lisa’s unmatched storytelling skills in action in this heartfelt farce.
