We always knew that "Handle With Care" was a regional darling, and we are very gratified that New York audiences have also embraced the show with love. We look forward to its continued success in theatres around the world.The comedy opened to mixed reviews: Hilarious and heartwarming (NY Times); Don't expect any nutrition from its sticky sweetness (Time Out NY); The denouement ... is sweet, but what transpires before it is ho-hum stuff (Newsroom Jersey).
Handle with Care tells the story of a young Israeli woman who reluctantly travels with her grandmother to America. The young woman, who has little command of English, meets a man who has little command of romance. Is their inevitable love an accident, or destiny generations in the making?
