“a brilliant, moving piece of theatre about immigration, anti-semitism and the persistence of love” – broadway world
“Bawdy and charming, and poignant and heartbreaking” – broadway world
“emotionally engaging, visually stunning and at 80 minutes
leaves us still wanting more” – musical theatre review
Humourously dark story-theatre with a high-energy concert, Old Stock debuted in Halifax and has become an international sensation, also enjoying a wildly popular seven-week run Off-Broadway. The play tells the true story of Hannah Moscovitch’s great-grandparents, who landed on Pier 2 as Jewish Romanian immigrants to start a new life. Dark and hilarious, Old Stock is a genre-bending folk tale, woven together in a concert of brash, rollicking, joyful Klezmer Folk music.
“A thing of raw and unmissable beauty” (Herald Scotland), this Klezmer-folk music-theatre hybrid stars musical sensation Ben Caplan.
