Featuring puppeteer: Brad Shur and his friends
Uncle Murray is coming over for dinner, but there's no food in sight! A young man's search for a family recipe ends up
bringing folk tales to life...in his kitchen.
Based on a collection of traditional Yiddish stories, "The Magic Soup" teaches that it is those with wit, humor and imagination who have the best chance of filling their
bellies -- and fulfilling their reams.
Recommended for ages 5+
