Sixteen-year-old Sala Garncarz volunteered to take her sister's place when she was ordered to report to a Nazi labor camp in wartime Germany. Neither she nor her family could have imagined that six weeks of required labor would stretch to almost five years of slavery in seven labor camps. Half a century later, Sala reveals her painful history to her grown daughter, documented in more than 350 letters from friends and family that she risked her life to save. The resurfacing of these letters begins an emotional journey of self-discovery for Sala's entire family. Arlene Hutton adapted this true account for the stage from the book Sala's Gift. The letters themselves are considered an important addition to Holocaust research, and were on display at the New York Public Library in 2006. Learn More

Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad is a night of comedy, music and burlesque, told by the gals who learned to smoke at Hebrew School, got drunk at their Bat-Mitzvahs and would rather have more schtuppa than the chupah. These chosen chicks boldly dare to deconstruct years of tradition, expectations and guilt in a fast-paced vaudeville extravaganza, complete with kick lines and punch lines. Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad features a stellar line up of comedians, musicians, spoken word artists and burlesque performers who have been featured on Comedy Central, HBO and MTV. This show has been wowing sold-out crowds in NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, DC, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Madison, Detroit, Montreal, Burlington, Provincetown, the Berkshires, the Hamptons and of course, the Catskills.
