MIRACLE ON SOUTH DIVISION STREET

November 29th, 2017

by Tom Dudzick Nov. 22 – Dec. 17, 2017 Studio Theatre

Directed by C. Michael Wright Featuring Josh Krause, Raeleen McMillion, Kat Wodtke and Greta Wohlrabe
Buffalo, NY might be depressed, but Clara Nowak is not. The devout Catholic is a mother of three, an organizer for her soup kitchen and the caretaker of her family’s local claim to fame: a 20-foot shrine to the Blessed Mother commemorating the miraculous night in 1942 when she appeared to Clara’s father in his barbershop. But when daughter Ruth announces one fateful Christmas Eve that she plans to create a one-woman show about her Grandpa’s story – the real story – this family’s foundations are shaken to the core. Tom Dudzick’s spirited comedy – just in time for the holidays – unspools a tale about believing in the powerful bonds that tie a family together.
