1723 Glenview Road Glenview

Sarah Goldman (Madeline Baird) is a nice Jewish girl who teaches Kindergarten and lives in Chicago. Sarah loves and respects her parents, and tries very hard to live up to their expectations -- but Sarah has a problem. Her dad, Abe (Ken Rubenstein) and her mom, Miriam (Julie Mitre) want "what's best for their daughter" which, Sarah knows, means that they'd like her to meet, marry and settle down with a nice Jewish boy. But Sarah has fallen in love with Chris (Mathias Blake), a charming young man who works at Leo Burnett as an account supervisor. She even hopes to marry him. But Chris is not Jewish. Just how "not-Jewish" is he? Well, his full name is Chris Kringle!

Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...Directed by Elizabeth Mazur Levin ( who probably has a better understanding of Sarah’s mental state than others, on a stage that is quite small, this version works. The comic timing on the part of each character is sheer perfection and as always at Oil Lamp, the audience leaves the theater with a good feeling about the past two hours they have spent together being entertained."
