Ehrenreich Riding The Brooklyn Wave

Return of ‘A Jews Grows in Brooklyn’ given fresh relevance by new population survey.

Special To The Jewish Week

Call it the Jewish Cape Canaveral. Brooklyn has been the launching pad for so many eminent Jewish Americans — from Arthur Miller to Woody Allen, and from Barbra Streisand to Ruth Bader Ginsburg — that one could hardly imagine America without it. Perhaps this helps to account for the continuing popularity of Jake Ehrenreich’s one-man show, “A Jew Grows in Brooklyn,” which has returned to New York after a record-breaking Off-Broadway run and a North American tour.

Ehrenreich “shortened, deepened and ‘wisened up’” the show over the years. Charlotte Nation
