About this show

Goodman Theatre is proud to present the world premiere of Alan Gross's High Holidays, directed by Steven Robman in the Goodman's 400-seat flexible Owen Bruner Theatre. This darkly comic and boisterous look at growing up in the Chicago suburbs during the early sixties is the story of 13-year old Billy Roman and the rollicking, anxiety-riddled preparations for his Bar Mitzvah. When Billy's rebellious older brother returns from college during the Jewish high holidays, his family begins to wobble and crack as it is forced to examine some hard truths about coming of age in the Jewish tradition.
