From Jan ’10 Spotlight: The Goodman Theatre’s production of High Holidays is now history, and like most local critics, I think it needs some significant rewrites. But the tie-in event on Nov 23, Tasting Tradition: Tales at the Table in Jewish Culture, was terrific. Julie Ganey, Mike Przygoda, and Ilana Shabanov from Serendipity Theatre Collective regaled us with holiday stories, and Spertus Institute’s “Chef Laura” served a feast—including the best gefilte fish I’ve ever had!
