The story of three generations of a Jewish-American family, spanning over almost a century, has enough drama, secrets, twists, romances and conflicts to fill several Belva Plain novels. The surprising thing about this production is how much of it works despite some major flaws. The clever set up for the story the book of Goldstein is by Charlie Schulman is that protagonist, author Louis Goldstein, Zal Owen arrives at the Actors Temple Theatre where the show is actually being performed to speak about his Pulitzer Prize winning family chronicle. As he begins to lecture, he is interrupted by his family disputing the story he has set down. Each character is well defined by this excellent actor who creates three distinct personalities. In addition to impressive dramatic skills, every one of them has a wonderful voice. And that brings us to the score. But the many ballads, while certainly pleasant, could be reassigned to any other character or story with little alteration because they lack so much in period and character. For a show that covers multiple decades there is little shift in style or vocabulary. Andrew E.
