Notes and Editorial Reviews
THE ODD POTATO sprouted out of a touching story that Eileen Bluestone Sherman’s husband shared about his childhood, where his family, too poor to purchase a Hanukkah menorah, carved a menorah from a misshapen potato. First a book, then a Broadway production, THE ODD POTATO has garnered the title “The Hanukkah Nutcracker.” This album features assorted Tony-winning actors and actresses performing the story. Includes narration from Judd Hirsch. A portion of proceeds goes toward Variety – The Children’s Charity.
Warm, wonderful, wistful, and witty! Music from the little play with the big heart starring twenty Tony Award winners! Narrated by Judd Hirsch; book and lyrics by Eileen B. Sherman; music by Gail C. Bluestone. A portion of
every sale benefits Variety, The Children’s Charity, and special needs children.
