Joel Grey narrates this documentary on the role of Jewish songwriters—from Irving Berlin to Stephen Sondheim, in the creation of the modern American musical—and how we can still hear elements of traditional Jewish music in the melodies of Broadway.
On March 11 at 7:30pm, the film will be introduced by noted Hawai‘i stage performer Shari Lynn.
