A Jew Grows in Brooklynis “funny, touching and beautiful …  

you don’t have to be Jewish or Brooklynish … Jake Ehrenreich is Dazzling!”


A smash hit from the heart of the Broadway, where it played for more than a year and a half and returning to New York after a smash two year national tour, A Jew Grows in Brooklynis an “engaging, poignant and hilarious” (Palm Beach Post) comedy musical about the path to an identity. This highly acclaimed show chronicles the life of Jake Ehrenreich; a uniquely talented American born child of Holocaust survivors.


Through stories and comedy and music, performed with a live band and multi-media video and photos – including a classic Rock Medley (California Dreamin’, Secret Agent Man, Sunshine of Your Love), a multi-instrumental version of Louis Prima’s Sing, Sing, Sing, and even a selection of Yiddish songs – Jake mesmerizingly recreates his unforgettable journey of discovery and lessons learned.


From the stoops of Brooklyn to Rock n’ Roll days--this show “has a glow all its own” (Chicago Tribune) and is “one of the most touching, soulful, and laugh out loud shows you’ll ever see!” (Jazz FM 91).  Anthony De Valle (Las Vegas Review-Journal) added…“Ehrenreich's likable stage presence and his belief in what he was doing gave the evening an electrical charge. He brought warmth to the room.”
