Five Bucks Well Spent

I must admit that this maven is not a theater critic. Nonetheless, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you lay down five dollars to see “No More Raisins, No More Almonds” playing this weekend at the Virginia Holocaust Museum. This play, written by a survivor of the Nazi Holocaust and performed by students from Colonial Heights Middle School, shows how children caught up in the horror coped with their daily lives. The music is wonderful and the performances outstanding. It will probably be the best five dollars you have spent in a long while.

“No More Raisins, No More Almonds” will be performed on Saturday, May 2, at 8:00 PM, and on Sunday, May 3, at 4:00 PM and again at 7:00 PM. The Virginia Holocaust Museum is located at the corner of 20th and East Cary Streets in Richmond.

You’ll be sorry if you miss this one.
