About this show

Join Mark Burstyn for a solo performance inspired by the book But He Was Good To His Mother by Robert Rockaway which, "imagines the notorious businessman and gangster who masterminded some of the most ingenious wealth managements systems of his day, struggling to reconcile his material successes with his desire to gain Israeli citizenship, and live out his days in the Promised Land and ultimately be buried next to his beloved grandfather in Jerusalem. With brutal honesty he subjects himself to an unsparing first degree in which he asks himself if his pursuit of the American dream and first-generation assimilation in this culture are worth the price he paid, and, more profoundly, if it is possible for him to be a good Jew and also a good American."
