From Generation to Generation
FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION is a humorous and heartwarming musical about Rose Lieberman, a grandma-to-be who might not live long enough to see her first grandchild. But instead of being sad, Rose jumps at the chance to leave her first grandchild an enduring gift. Laugh and cry with Rose and her friends and family as she creates this beautiful legacy. GENERATION won the Theatre Arts Guild 1997 award for OUTSTANDING NEW SCRIPT. The music has received rave reviews from audiences in Omaha, St.Louis, Los Angeles and Chicago! Nineteen songs from prolific songwriter, Karen Sokolof Javitch and arranger Chuck Penington,music conductor for Emmy-award winning group, Mannheim Steamroller. The songs run the gamut from the theme song - 'From Generation to Generation,' to the fun loving 'I Love to Kvetch!' to the Holocause song: 'Once Upon a Time,' to life about the 50's: 'Life was Simple Then,' to a wedding song:'Ani L'Dodi,' and many more. Any person from any religion can relate to this musical and to these songs! 'People always tell me they can't get my songs out of their head! I don't know whether they love me or hate me for that!' Karen jokes. Chuck Penington, her musical arranger agrees. 'Karen's melodies are her forte - you listen to her CD's and I guarantee you you'll be humming her songs.' Thank you from this generation to the next...
