Take a journey with powerhouse actress and singer Michelle Azar as she winds her way from Baghdad to Brooklyn and beyond. Told through story and song, this one-woman show traces Azar's Jewish and Iraqi roots in a timely account of family love and dysfunction set against a historical and redemptive background. Jewish Daily calls it “a beautifully calibrated performance … an engaging and enjoyable evening of storytelling and song.” A Q&A with Azar and Aziza Hasan (Executive Director of NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change) follows the performance.
