A reLisaRobinsBlessingscipient of the Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award, the Los Angeles premiere of The Blessing of a Broken Heart has inspired audiences to attend more than once to experience such a touching performance.

It is a story of resilience and strength. This Los Angeles Premiere was adapted from Sherri Mandell’s National Jewish Book Award Winner by director Todd Salovey.

Lisa Robins stars as an Israeli mother who experiences a horrific tragedy and is broken hearted, but miraculously not broken. She journeys from crippling grief, to hope and healing. The American Spectator calls Robins’ performance “astonishingly evocative” and a “must see.” This story, about hope, purpose, and recovery, is based on Sherri Mandell’s award winning book about the events that changed her family forever.

“I opened the book and couldn’t stop reading. Sherri’s language and her imagery were like a bolt of lightning; in just two paragraphs I was riveted. There are so many parts of our lives – wounds – and so few pieces in the theater aiming directly at healing. This is one of the exceptions,” explains Salovey

The Blessing of a Broken Heart runs Thursdays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm and 7:30pm through March 20, 2016.
