The Ghent Playhouse Presents, Miracle on South Division Street

Screen Shot 2019-02-08 at 10.12.31 AM
The Ghent Playhouse’s 2019 season is off and running with Miracle on South Division Street.

Clara Nowak, of Buffalo, NY, and her three grown kids have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous night in 1942, when the Blessed Mother appeared to their grandfather in his barbershop! Since then the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowaks’ commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble. When daughter Ruth announces her plans to write and star in a one-woman show about the family miracle so the “whole world will know,” a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel.

Final Weekend of Our Town at Ghent Playhouse

It’s the final weekend of performances for Our Town at the Ghent Playhouse.

Set in the fictional town of Grover’s Corners, Thornton Wilder’s masterpiece is narrated by a Stage Manager and performed with minimal props and sets, as the audience follows the Webb and Gibbs families, as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theater history – die.   The Ghent Playhouse is thrilled to present the playwright’s definitive version of Our Town, described by Edward Albee as “… the greatest American play ever written.”  Winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
