New York, NY – Growing Up In America LP is proud to present a limited
engagement of the new musical comedy A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, written by and
starring Jake Ehrenreich, and directed by Jon Huberth. Performances will run
from March 24th to May 28th, 2006 at The American Theatre of Actors
(Chernuchin Theatre) located at 314 West 54th St. in NYC. Previews begin
March 24th for an April 10th opening.

A Jew Grows in Brooklyn is an innovative and delightful new musical comedy
that tells the autobiographical story of Jake Ehrenreich’s first generation
American journey. Through sometimes poignant, often times hysterical stories
about his family, Jake weaves together haimish wisdom and a hip modern
sensibility to create an entertaining and touching two hours of comedy and
song. From his parents’ survival of the Holocaust to his stickball
recollections in Brooklyn to his Catskill Mountain memories, Jake uses his
unique musical and comedic talent to present a tour de force performance.
Through the use of video images, the audience gets to meet some of Jake’s
family members, such as his Great Aunt Regina (and her penchant for plastic
slipcovers) and his father, Jonah (on Baseball: “What kind of a game is
this…two people play and eight people watch?!â€?)
