Theater J Afternoon Out: BROKEN GLASS
Sunday, June 25 at 2 PM
Join Temple Sinai friends at Theater J for the matinee performance of Arthur Miller's BROKEN GLASS, directed by the highly acclaimed Aaron Posner. Sylvia Gellburg has suddenly, mysteriously, become paralyzed from the waist down, and her husband, a self-denying Jew, can't figure out why. Set in Brooklyn throughout the rampage of Kristallnacht in 1938, this riveting, psychological drama demands we confront our fears, our assumptions, and our anguish. Miller balances private and public morality in an astonishing and electrifying play about being American, being married, and coming to terms with one's own identity.
