Ever since the miraculous night in 1942 when the Blessed Mother appeared to Grandpa in his barbershop, the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowaks’ 20-foot shrine as a beacon of hope and faith. But a deathbed confession reveals a secret that brings the family legend into question, along with great fun. Heartfelt and hilarious!
“…a sprightly, gentle comedy, where revelations that might remake a family’s sense of itself are each rolled out in service of laughter.” – NY Times
“Utterly delightful while delivering a solid message on faith, the lack of it, why we believe what we believe and how we can, or must, adjust to life’s surprises.” – Theatremania.com
Contains adult themes and language.

Last year, Steve Scott took on directing Buffalo Theatre Ensemble’s wonderful production of Outside Mullingar, and now he’s back again to direct what is sure to be a great performance, Miracle on South Division Street. He talks about his process for pacing and comedic timing, and then gives a little insight about the characters and the hysterical struggles they endure throughout the show.
