Event Notes

× Written by Hannah Moscovitch With songs by Ben Caplan & Christian Barry Toronto premiere

A humourously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert. This genre-bending music-theatre hybrid starring Klezmer folk sensation Ben Caplan is inspired by the real life story of Moscovitch’s Romanian-Jewish great-grandparents who immigrated to Canada in 1908. It’s about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war. It’s about looking into the eyes of God.

“A hugely engaging experience” THE GUARDIAN

“Emotionally engaging, visually stunning and at 80 minutes leaves us still wanting more.” MUSICAL THEATRE REVIEW
