By Bob Nelson

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — An impressive historical narrative has arrived at Philadelphia’s Suzanne Roberts Theatre, offering a fascinating mix of Jewish identities and familiar public figures.

Stars of David” is a single-act world premiere from the Philadelphia Theatre Company, offering us Abigail Pogrebin’s highly acclaimed narrative of Jews and their fascination with being Jewish, combined with a cross-section of impressive public figures as Gloria Steinem, Aaron Sorkin, Joan Rivers, Norman Lear, and Wendy Wasserman — to name a few.

Then there those of current Jewish heritage transformed into current popularity generated by the talents of celebrated Jewish figures.

Indeed, the current “Stars of David,” as the present production is titled, is a combination of an ensemble cast inspired by the familiarity of history.

“Stars of David” runs through November 18th at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, Broad and Lombard Streets, along the Avenue of the Arts.
