The Midwood Miracle @ Shaare Shamayim
Lyrical, alluring and disarming, Deborah Karpels performance in The Midwood Miracle is a delicious treat and a family story at the same time.
The show performed by Deborah Karpel with Michael Lewis Smith at the piano and directed by Aimee Todoroff tells a family story about a Jewish girl growing up in coal mining Appalachia, VA. Some details of the script are fictional; some are taken from family archives. Vivid elements of life in Appalachia, where Karpels mother grew up, are followed by the urban tales set in Brooklyn, NY. The scenes of how the characters parents met, their ideals and a mix-up of quirky twists are wonderfully delivered by Karpels amazing performance and singing. The original compositions co-written by Karpel with Ted Kociolek and Rachelle Garniez are perfectly mashed along with traditional Americana, western swing, operatic arias, improvised art songs, and Yiddish songs. Come and see the miracle that could have only happened in Midwood.
The Philadelphia premiere of this critically acclaimed production takes place in the fully renovated concert hall of Shaare Shamayim synagogue right before the conclusion of Hanukkha.
