2.5 MINUTE RIDE

Life’s a rollercoaster. Enjoy!

This one-woman tour de force by critically acclaimed author Lisa Kron invites us on a journey that is both uproariously funny and surprisingly sobering, as we are introduced to a cast of characters through the Kron family album. From her devout Jewish brother desperate to find his “shana maidel,” to her 75 year-old father returning to Auschwitz, where his own parents were killed, Kron asks the question of how we can find humor in the midst of life’s cruel twists of fate.

“Remarkable…emotional vibrations that won’t stop.”
