Live Streamed Story Experiences

FEB 23rd,  APR 20th, and JUNE 22nd | 7:00-8:30 PM

The Breman, in partnership with the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York, presents Spring Theater with The Braid, a series of three livestreamed theatrical events. Each features The Braid, the Santa Monica, California-based theater company that creates, curates, produces and preserves stories grounded in Jewish culture and experience.

Offered online, the three shows of performed stories are:


The Matzo Ball Diaries
February 23, 7-8:30 pm
Professional and lay writers share funny, poignant and pivotal moments that reveal the power of food to heal – or destroy. One young woman in Iran learns what plucking chickens has in common with hair removal of a new bride. A boy decides to give up certain Jewish foods to lose weight, but will he lose his Judaism as well? A man begins a food franchise only to realize the impact he made on others. A heartbroken woman learns how to say goodbye to her mate when making a tomato omelet for him for the last time.

Remembrance of Things Present
April 20, 7-8:30 pm
The story of the Holocaust continues far past liberation. Those born in the generations that followed especially feel the deep and resounding imprint in all aspects of their lives. In these surprisingly inspiring and heart-opening stories, we learn how the daughter of a French resistance fighter must choose between a life of activism and her own survival. We see how the son and grandson of Tuvia Bielsky, leader of the partisans, contend with the legacy of a hero. We’ll see the unexpected fear one grandson feels as he visits his family’s home in Germany, 65 years after his family fled the Nazis.


Out Loud: Queer Stories Through a Jewish Lens
June 22, 7-8:30 pm
This disarming and charming show not only celebrates the beauty of the LGBTQIA+ community through true stories but also explores the power of love and the journey of finding one’s place in the world. Laugh as two lesbians find each other through an unlikely dating scenario. Cry as a Persian son struggles to make peace with his deceased mother who never accepted his queerness. Discover how a strong Latine woman might have to give up her foundation and her family when she falls in love with a trans man. Will a multicultural man raised Christian find answers in Judaism to his many questions and will those answers lead to love and belonging?

$18 per show, with a 10% discount for Breman Museum members (use the code BRAID10 at checkout).
