Welcome to MJTC's 24th season! I’m excited to invite you into our intimate theater where bold and provocative new plays rooted in Jewish content will inspire you to think about important issues in our lives today. I think you’re going to be as delighted as I am with what lies ahead: a touching journey through pregnancy and health care in America, a family comedy/drama about moving through generational change fraught with sibling dynamics, a timely look at a millennial sexual encounter and questions of consent, a funny and poignant world premiere about synagogue members facing the loss of their congregation, and for the holidays, a charming Hanukkah tale. Our Doorways Programs, open to all, will complement the work on stage and deepen your understanding of production topics, and if you join us with a 3-show package as a passbook subscriber, special events for you will further enhance your artistic experience. I hope you’ll sign on for the season, and I look forward to seeing you soon!
