It's hard to believe, honestly, that my book, "Stars of David," is about to have its musical incarnation on the Off-Broadway stage, but it somehow feels strangely logical, too. Theater was my childhood obsession, and this project joins that lifelong passion with my 2005 journalistic foray into Jewish identity, and my ongoing sorting-out of where I fall on the spectrum of connection to a people and a tradition. I hope people will come to this and find themselves in some of the remarkable songs that have been written by remarkable songwriters.
