Catholic/Jewish partnership presents story of Warsaw Uprising

The Collier/Lee Chapter of Hadassah and the Catholic-Jewish Dialogue of Collier County are bringing the Florida premier of “Warsaw: A Story in Song” on Saturday and Sunday, March 8-9. The musical drama has been performed to sell-out audiences at the New York Musical Theater Festival and the Museum of Jewish Heritage, where the show received rave reviews.

“Warsaw” tells the story of a young Jewish man, Roman, trapped inside the Warsaw Ghetto and separated from his Catholic fiancée, Ana. They struggle to reunite against overwhelming odds as Roman struggles to support his family amidst a crumbling ghetto and Nazi occupation. He is inspired to join a small group of resistance fighters in their struggle for freedom and dignity. The timeless themes of love, hope and courage underscore this musical play.
