On Sunday, the Penguin Rep Theatre will open the off-Broadway premiere of Tom Dudzick's comedy "Miracle on South Division Street." The show, which debuted in a Penguin Rep production in 2009, is about a Buffalo family dealing with changing times.
Here's how a release from the company puts it: "The Nowaks of Buffalo always thought they were special, ever since Clara’s father, an immigrant from war-torn Poland, had a miraculous vision in his barbershop. But 65 years later, Clara’s youngest daughter has stopped going to mass, her son is dating a Jewish girl, and a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel with unexpectedly hilarious results."
For anyone who happens to be in New York City, the show, now in previews, opens Sunday at 2 p.m. in St. Luke's Theatre, 308 West 46th St. More info is here, and a New York Times review of the 2009 production is here.
