Hartford Stage brings the Academy Award-winning star of Moonstruck and Steel Magnolias back to the stage in a concert version of her recent Broadway hit Rose, the story of a survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto. Inspired by the real story of his maternal grandmother, playwright Martin Sherman has crafted an unforgettable portrait of a Jewish octogenarian looking back on her birth in the Ukraine, her escape from the Nazis, emigration to America and her travels to Israel. "A tour-de-force! That is surely the term for Olympia Dukakis' performance in Rose." -- The New York Times
