This iconic show continues to delight audiences and critics alike. A smash hit in the heart of Broadway, where it broke box office records and played to sold-out audiences for almost two years, A Jew Grows in Brooklyn is an “engaging, poignant and hilarious” (Palm Beach Post) comedy musical about growing up in Brooklyn and the Catskills as an American-born child of Holocaust survivors.

From the struggle with Jake's family’s past, to laughter and rebirth, this “tour de force performance” (Las Vegas Journal Review) is “a delightful journey that speaks to anyone hoping to live out the American Dream" (ABC-TV).


The New York Times raves, “Jake Ehrenreich is Dazzling! A Jew Grows in Brooklyn is funny and touching...and you don’t have to be Jewish or Brooklynish…”  


The Philadelphia Inquirer calls it “An uplifting treasure with universal appeal — in the same elevated company as Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays, and Chaz Palminteri’s A Bronx Tale.”


Through comedy, multi-media and music – including a classic rock medley from his youth, a multi-instrumental version of Louis Prima’s Sing, Sing, Sing, a Yiddish lullaby, and even a selection of Christmas songs written by Jewish songwriters (“Beautiful!” NY Times), Jake mesmerizingly recreates his unforgettable journey of discovery and lessons learned. Critics hail this as a
show that “has a glow all its own” (Chicago Tribune) and is “one of the most touching, soulful, and laugh-out-loud shows you’ll ever see!” (Jazz FM 91) Broadway World proclaimed, “Run, don’t walk! This is truly one of the most uplifting evenings one could spend in the theater!”
