The one-person comedy with music stars Jake Ehrenreich, who also penned the show. He is backed by a quartet of musician-singers. John Huberth directs with musical direction by Elysa Sunshine. The creative team also features Joseph Egan (set design), Lisa Ehrenreich (costume design), Anjeanette Stokes (lighting design) and David Ferdinand and One Dream Sound (sound design).
A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, according to production notes, concerns "a young man and his family's quest for the American dream. When Jake Ehrenreich was growing up in Brownsville in the 1960s, he wanted nothing more than to be an American. But his Yiddish-speaking parents, who failed to understand the game of baseball or make sense of rock music, made it difficult for him to feel part of the mainstream culture."
Actor-writer Ehrenreich has appeared on Broadway in Dancin', Barnum and They're Playing Our Song and Off-Broadway in Jonah, Songs of Paradise, The Golden Land and A Hot Minute. He also toured internationally as Ringo in Beatlemania.
