The theatrical memoir, written by OxiClean creator Max Appel and Su Teatro executive artistic director Anthony J. Garcia, invites audiences to step back in time and learn about the Jewish community that once populated the West Colfax neighborhood of Denver from 1930. through the 70s.

This gripping and ambitious new play recounts the experiences of a generation whose parents had immigrated from Eastern Europe to escape the horror of pogroms. A community bound by cultural and spiritual tradition has transformed the city of Denver into the “Westside” that has produced a significant number of educators, entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, civic leaders and philanthropists.

The box office opens at 6:30 p.m. — phone 303-296-0219.
