PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Living on the Polish/Ukrainian border at the outbreak of the war, a Jewish family with seven children should not have survived. But the Parnes family did, thanks to a combination of luck, happenstance and Ė most importantly Ė the familyís own determination to stay together no matter what. Stars of Yiddish musical theatre before the war, the family escaped their town before German soldiers arrived, continuing east, always just a step ahead of the Nazis. Itís a story of survival against the odds. Itís a love story. And itís a story that will stay with you, long after the show is finished.

In 2009, a combination of luck and coincidence led to a new idea: to tell this inspring story through an original work of musical theatre.

The resulting book and score was prepared by a group of exceptionally talented and dedicated young people, under the guiding hand of Corey Jan Albert. Writers and composers include: Cameron Albert-Deitch, Sam Bardge, Haley Chung, Leslie Doctor, Dara Epstein, Justin Fisher, Maital Gotfried, Leah Quattrochi, and Parish Turnet, with additionl music and lyrics by Greg Windle. Based on interviews conducted for the book, One Step Ahead, by Avraham Azrieli.
