    The spark of romance here is pure and filled with that anxious joy new love brings. Gitter's characters transcend the page thanks to expertly paced dialogue that manages to provide us with crucial world and character details without sacrificing the narrative. Mixing modern vernacular with 1933 Poland is a stroke of pure genius. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

    What a gorgeous, sweet play. Set in the dark, it brings light and love. Even in the darkest times, love shines a light. Gitter shines a bright life and you dance with the couple in gratitude (just before you have blintzes).

    In the middle of one of the darkest periods in modern history, this delightful play about love and immigration gives you something to smile about with plenty of warm fuzzies.
