Miracle on South Division Street
December 3, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - December 28, 2014 @ 3:00 pm
Actors’ Playhouse is thrilled to present the South Florida premiere of Miracle on South Division Street, a marvelous new comedy by Tom Dudzick about family faith and adjusting to life’s unexpected surprises, that plays December 3 – 28 at the Miracle Theatre.
Meet the Nowaks of Buffalo, NY. They have always known they were special, ever since the night Clara’s father, an immigrant from war-torn Poland, had a miraculous vision in his barbershop. Keeping the faith nearly 65 years later in their gritty, deteriorating neighborhood are Clara (Elizabeth Dimon) and her grown children: Jimmy (Clay Cartland), a garbage collector, Bev (Jeni Hacker), a ketchup bottler, and Ruth (Deborah L. Sherman), who would be a struggling actress if she could only get a part. But now Ruth has stopped going to mass, Jimmy is dating a Jewish girl, and a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel with heartfelt and hilarious results.
Directed by David Arisco, the creative team for Miracle on South Division Street includes Tim Bennett (Scenic Design), Ellis Tillman (Costume Design), Mitch Furman (Sound Design) and Eric Nelson (Lighting Design).
“Although this is our first Tom Dudzick production, he happens to be one of America’s most regionally produced playwrights,” said Director David Arisco. “In Miracle on South Division Street, the celebrated author introduces us to the Nowaks, yet another hysterically dysfunctional family dealing with time honored traditions and the holidays.”
