Next up for the fourteen-year-old is a run at the Adobe Theater starring in “A Crack in the Wall” Written by Peter Fisk, Directed by Marty Epstein – A drama about two families, one Jewish and one Catholic, Set in Warsaw, Poland in 1943, two weeks before the Jewish ghetto uprising against the Germans, Ari and Stanislaw form an unlikely friendship. Ari is fourteen, the son of Moshe, one of the leaders of the impending revolt. Stanislaw, eighteen, is the son of an angry, disillusioned Catholic man. Stanislaw’s brother, Christoph, has been killed smuggling guns to the Jews. Now Stanislaw has taken over his brother’s work, much to his father’s dismay. Ari and Stanislaw meet by pure chance, through a ‘crack in the wall’ that separate the Jewish and Christian sections of the city. All they ever see are each other’s eyes.
