Awake and Sing!

Odets’ 1935 play follows the Bergers, a Jewish family from the Bronx trying to make ends meet during the Depression. The family’s matriarch Bessie – one of the most spectacular roles in the American canon – will stop at nothing to keep her family together… even if it means ripping her children’s dreams apart. Widely recognized as a classic of the American theater, AWAKE AND SING! is directed by Kimberly Senior, fresh off her success with Pulitzer-winner DISTRACTED at Lincoln Center.
