RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

In 1940 France an unlikely pair team up to evade the approaching Nazis. Little Jacobowsky, a Polish Jewish intellectual, has been one step ahead of the Nazis for years. Stjerbinsky is an aristocrat, anti semitic Polish colonel who's trying to get to England. Jacobowsky has a car, but can't drive. The Colonel can. And so begins their adventurous journey set against a backdrop of lively and lovely songs and dances that takes them to a carnival, a Jewish wedding and onto a train when the car breaks down. Accompanying them is Marianne, the Colonel's girlfriend who Jacobowsky falls in love with. But it is not to be.
