The People In The Picture

The People In The Picture

A musical about a grandmother recalling her life in the Yiddish theater and the Holocaust.


Once the darling of the Yiddish Theatre in pre-war Poland, now a grandmother in New York City, Bubbie has had quite a life. But what will it all mean if she can't pass on her stories to the next generation? Though her granddaughter is enchanted by her tales, her daughter Red will do anything to keep from looking back.
