The Ghent Playhouse kicks off the second-half of its 2018-2019 season with the hilarious kitchen-sink family dramedy Miracle on South Division Street. This heartwarming fictional story by Tom Dudzick was inspired by a real Buffalo, NY barber who claimed the Virgin Mary appeared to him and thus erected a 20-foot-tall statue in the neighborhood. Directed by Cathy Lee-Visscher, Miracle on South Division Street runs February 1-17. Tickets are on sale now at www.GhentPlayhouse.org.
“At the heart of this show is family. Even though we catch them in a turbulent moment, there is still a lot of love there. Just look at the show’s premise; one sister calls a family meeting and everyone shows up,” explained actor Sam Reilly. “Even though they fight and get on each others nerves - they still show up for each other.”
Meg Dooley stars as Clara, who has converted the famed barber shop into a soup kitchen and religiously tends to the shrine that the neighborhood sees as a beacon of hope in the midst of Buffalo’s urban blight. Sam Reilly, Jimmy, is a blue-collar guy with a secret of his own, and Christina Harrigan is Beverly, the frumpy eldest daughter. Sierra Lynch is Ruth, the middle child and an aspiring actress.
