An Unforgettable Story of Love, Loss, Family, and Forgiveness
“A Shayna Maidel” (A Pretty Girl), a heartfelt drama by Barbara Lebow, will be performed January 17-February 2 on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. as well as Sundays at 2 p.m. at The Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, Wisconsin.
Two sisters – one a survivor of the Holocaust, the other sheltered in America – meet after a separation of almost 20 years. Their heart-wrenching reunion shows that if war can tear a family apart, love can put it back together.
“Miss Rose White” was a Hallmark Hall of Fame television adaptation of the play, which first aired in 1992. It received five Emmy awards.
Following the Sunday matinee performances on January 19 and 26, Rob Wertheimer, a Hudson attorney, will present “Ruth’s Story,” an account of his mother’s experience as a “hidden child” during the Holocaust.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $13 for students of all ages for this production in the Black Box Theater. Reservations may be made by contacting The Phipps ticket office at 715.386.8409 or online at ThePhipps.org.
