About this show

Dinner and Delusion begins and ends with Passover Seders that take place sixty years apart. On Passover, 1949, a 13 year old boy misbehaves with his Aunt Rosie. When he is locked in a closet for his misdeeds, he meets the prophet Elijah, who tells him that Rosie is the Shekkinah, the apparition of God as a female body, a.k.a. the Eternal Feminine. Dinner and Delusion explores temporal and mystical aspects of love and family with humor and passion with a stylistically engaging score that references world music, to contemporary Americana, and classic Klezmer sounds.
