WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A play that led to a hit film, Crossing Delancey tells the story of Izzy — a beautiful, intelligent, single young woman — and her 80-year-old Bubbie, determined to see her granddaughter get married before she (Bubbie) dies. Giving Cupid a nudge, this irascible granny hires a matchmaker and sets out to find her granddaughter the perfect mate. But will Sam, the neighborhood pickle man, be the kind of guy Izzy has in mind? This heartwarming comedy takes a bemused look at the clash between traditional Jewish-American immigrant culture and the more modern aspirations of the next generation.
