SummaryAdd a Summary
Rifka’s parents have the best job in the world. Actors in the Yiddish Theater, they often will take their spunky daughter to work with them from time to time. It’s just a quick trip on the subway to Union Square and then up to Second Avenue where The Grand awaits. There her parents transform into old men or little girls depending on the show. Rifka explores the props in the basement and the dressing rooms of the actresses, but she doesn’t get into trouble until the day she accidentally explores a flight of steps that lead onto the stage during a live performance. Fortunately, the girl’s a born actress. She’s never been more at home. A note about the Yiddish theaters of the late 1800s / early 1900s and the author’s own experiences as a child are included alongside photos and playbills at the book’s end.
