From its record breaking, award winning run in the heart of Broadway, Jake Ehrenreich returns to Coral Springs with this newly minted version of his hit comedy musical, “A Jew Grows In Brooklyn”.

The New York Times hails “Brooklyn is beautiful, touching and funny – like Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays,” and New York Magazine raves “Poignant and hilarious – haimish wisdom with a modern sensibility.”

From his life on the streets of Brooklyn and his struggle with his family’s survivor past, to the laughter and rebirth of a Catskills nightclub – with music, humor and multi-media – Jake Ehrenreich mesmerizingly recreates his unforgettable journey – now made more famous in his critically acclaimed bestselling book by the Chicken Soup for the Soul publishers. 

Directed by New York theater veteran Jon Huberth, The Miami Herald declares “somewhere two loving parents are kvelling over the son who did them proud” – and the Sun Sentinel offers “Ehrenreich would win over a symposim of Episcopal ministers from Boston!”

Jake recently starred with Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner and Sarah Silverman in the film “The Last Laugh” – and his musings about the Catskills are included in “Summer Haven” alongside such luminaries as IB Singer and Art Spiegalman. Jake’s new TV show begins airing late 2017.

Don’t miss this limited opportunity to see Jake live on-stage in his now famous show!
