Stage Door’s A Shayna Maidel Flawed But Moving Drama

For immigrants wrestling with cultural assimilation, salvation lies not in burying the past life, but coming to terms with its baggage and its ghosts. Playwright Barbara Lebow illustrated her premise in her 1985 A Shayna Maidel now enjoying an ultimately moving revival at Broward Stage Door. It benefits greatly from a promising performance by Mary Sansone as a shattered Holocaust survivor trying to reconnect with the remains of her family in New York City.
