The People in the Picture Information

About the Show:

The People in the Picture presents events both in flashbacks of Bubbie's memory and in the "present" reality of 1970s New York. As she recounts the notable events of her past, the people in Bubbie's photographs come to vivid life and articulate her stories. Through her tales, Bubbie performs the important task of passing on a family history and the history of a culture that is in danger of eroding over time. This show is a powerfully emotional tale with songs that illustrate its most poignant messages and profound lessons. The inclusion of old theater productions in Bubbie's memory also gives the show moments of more upbeat excitement and humor. Check out the schedule today and get your The People in the Picture tickets for a time-travelling adventure into the meaning of sacrifice, memory, and family.

Plot Synopsis:

Raisel was a Yiddish theatre actress in pre-World-War-II Poland. It is now the 1970s and she lives in New York City with her daughter, Red, and her granddaughter, Jenny, who calls her "Bubbie." Jenny hangs on to Bubbie's every word as she recounts her experiences from her years as the darling of the Yiddish theatre, but Red wants nothing to do with her stories from the terrible years during the war. Through Bubbie's flashbacks, we see everything that Raisel endured to bring herself and her daughter through the war alive. Meanwhile, Red is forced to deal with Bubbie's worsening health, and it is proving to be a difficult and emotional process.
