Event description

Description

This one-woman musical memoir tells a moving family story through the original compositions and traditional songs.

Lyrical, alluring and disarming, Deborah Karpel’s performance in The Midwood Miracle is a delicious treat and a familiar story at the same time.

The show is performed by Deborah Karpel, with Michael Lewis Smith at the piano and is directed by Aimee Todoroff. It tells a family story about a Jewish girl growing up in coal mining Appalachia, VA.

Some details of the script are fictional and some are taken from family archives. Vivid elements of life in Appalachia, where Karpel’s mother grew up, are followed by the urban tales set in Brooklyn, NY. The scenes of how the character’s parents met, their ideals, and a mix-up of quirky twists are wonderfully delivered by Karpel’s amazing performance and singing.

The original compositions - co-written by Karpel with Ted Kociolek and Rachelle Garniez - are perfectly matched with traditional Americana, western swing, operatic arias, improvised art songs, and Yiddish songs.

Come and see the miracle that could have only happened in Midwood!
