Goldstein is described as follows: "Louis Goldstein has written a tell-all family memoir. While it is a best-seller, his family claims that it isn't true. Goldstein goes back in time to uncover 90 years of secrets, sacrifice, and love lost and found. This original musical is a celebration of the challenges and triumphs of an immigrant Jewish-American family."
