Based on the novel by Pete Hamill
SNOW IN AUGUST is the story of an altar boy, a Rabbi and a Golem set in Brooklyn in 1947, the year that Jackie Robinson came to play for the Dodgers. It is a musical exploration of the fight between good and evil — from Captain Marvel to the real world struggle for racial equality that began in post World War II America — and what it takes to be a hero.
