“…playful, mysterious, brave and astonishingly captivating.” —MUSICAL THEATRE REVIEW
Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a humourously dark folk tale woven together with a high energy concert. This music-theatre hybrid, starring international Klezmer sensation Ben Caplan, is inspired by the true story of Hannah Moscovitch’s grandparents who came to Canada in 1908. It’s about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war. It’s about looking into the eyes of God.
Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story was nominated for six Drama Desk Awards (New York) including Outstanding Musical.
