A Jew Grows in Brooklyn
A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, starring Jake Ehrenreich, returns to Gindi Auditorium at American Jewish University for a strictly limited 15-performance engagement. The show played to sold out houses last February — and is returning to Los Angeles by popular demand.
Ehrenreich has given more than 2,000 performances of the show — including eighteen months off-Broadway — sharing with audiences all over North America, with warmth and humor, the laughter and the tears of growing up the first American-born child of Polish Holocaust survivors.
Along the way, Ehrenreich, backed by a live band and multi-media production, performs everything from a classic rock medley to bits from the Catskills and even a Christmas medley of songs by Jewish songwriters — the popular music of both his and his parents’ generations.

Tuesday, Feb. 7—Saturday, Feb. 25; Monday—Thursday and Saturday Evenings at 8 p.m.; Sunday, Feb. 19, at 2 p.m. & 5 p.m.
