The Jewish Theatre of Bloomington to present ‘Madeleines’ in May


The Jewish Theatre of Bloomington will present the play “Madeleines” at 7:30 p.m. May 4, 6, 11, 13 and 3 p.m. May 7 at The Waldron Arts Center Fire Bay — located at 122 S. Walnut St.  

Bringing to life the winner of the 2022 National Jewish Playwriting contest, “Madeleines” follows the story of a family of Jewish women finding ways to love each other through shared grief and the solace of baking. The events in the play occur when two sisters — after their mother’s death — discover a family secret embedded in the recipe.

Tickets are $30 at the Bloom Box Office — located at 114 E. Kirkwood Ave. — or online at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater website. Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of each show.
