Family Album 2: How Dad Created the World

Family Album 2: How Dad Created the World

"Highly Recommended. I wanted you to know how enormously impressed I was by the production of ‘Katie Malone.’ I found the performance of Julie Portman enormously moving." -J. Carter Brown, Natl. Gallery of Art
"Highly Recommended. Ms. Portman casts a spell of magic." -New York Daily News
Offering a daughter's honest and touching portrayal of an American family, Obie Award-winning actress and playwright Julie Portman recreates the world of her parents in two plays through stories from their daily lives. How Dad Created the World, the second play, is the story about Julie's father, a man who fills his household with the richness of music, a wealth of outspoken opinions, and the tenderness of his old age. Imagine growing up in a household where everything from toilet training to philosophies of life is communicated through singing. Since her dad manages their home like the conductor of a symphony, there are more than a few sour notes among the harmonies in the household. Produced by Ki Theatre. 04/08DE JSCA 60 min.
