About this show

Beginning in 1910, Sylvia Regan's Morning Star tells the story of the hopes and struggles of an immigrant Jewish family on the Lower East Side of New York. Becky Felderman, a widow, has brought her four children to America so they might have a better life than they would in Russia. Their fortunes are shaped by the momentous events happening around them: the Triangle Shirtwaist fire, World War I and the Great Depression. First produced on Broadway in 1940, Morning Star shares with us a poignant quest for family, love and the promise of the American dream.
