MIRACLE ON SOUTH DIVISION STREET
by Tom Dudzick
March 1 – March 24; previews February 27 & 28
“But isn’t knowing the truth better? Instead of basing our lives on some kind of — a miracle?”
Hippodrome audiences fell in love with Tom Dudzick’s infectiously hilarious and genuinely heart-warming plays Over the Tavern and King o’ the Moon. Miracle on South Division Street is the story of the Nowak family, living in the East Side of Buffalo, New York, where Clara, the family matriarch, happily runs her soup kitchen and tends to the family heirloom – a twenty-foot shrine to the Blessed Mother which adjoins the house. The Nowak family’s faith is shaken to the very core when a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel, and the results are heartfelt and hilarious.
“Best comedy of the year! A great hook that will keep generations laughing. You have to see it to believe it.” – Examiner.com.
