Hot-off-the-Press! In the late 1950s, a Jewish mob boss facing pressure from both the Feds and the underworld became friends with his doctor, a former Communist who had broken the Jewish quota at Penn Medical School and became one of the most respected cardiologists in New Jersey. Sixty years later, the doctor's grandson draws on the stories of this unlikely friendship and the teachings of Ethics of the Fathers for a one-person show exploring morality, legacy, and Jewish identity in America.
