Quotes & Highlights

“Very funny and surprisingly touching.” —Mel Brooks
“A poignant period piece with a very serious purpose. An unexpectedly wrenching play.” —Los Angeles Times


Spend a summer evening at Rosen’s Hotel in the Catskills, where a blacklisted writer, a classical pianist, a Russian dictator and a lovesick busboy listen to Beethoven, The Weavers and Stan Kenton.
