The Matzo Ball Diaries: Spring Theater with The Braid
Thursday, February 23 | 7:00 PM ET

In The Matzo Ball Diaries, professional and lay writers reveal 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? The Braid creates the perfect recipe for a meaningful and enjoyable evening through these and other moving and humorous stories.

The Matzo Ball Diaries is part of a series of three theatrical events in partnership with The Braid. In Person and Virtual Three-Show Bundles are available. Discounts for Museum Members.
