About the Program

Take a journey with powerhouse actress and singer Michelle Azar as she winds her way from Baghdad to Brooklyn and beyond.  Told through story and song, this one-woman show traces Azar's Jewish and Iraqi roots in a timely account of family love and dysfunction set against a historical and redemptive background. Jewish Daily calls it “a beautifully calibrated performance … an engaging and enjoyable evening of storytelling and song.”

Directed by Brian Kite.

A Q&A with Azar and Aziza Hasan (Executive Director of NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change) follows the performance.
