offstage here. A band of
toughs shoots up Haskell's
produce wagon, but Haskell
just moves his business into
town. We glimpse Hester
Street's crowded ghetto, along
with other vintage
photographic projections, on
the wide clapboard wall in
Kevin Rupnik's simple, effec-
tive set, but the images of the
ghetto, too quickly pass by.
This is a dream come true,
and Harelik's nostalgic mood
is carefully maintained by
Reid Johnston's pastel
lighting.
Director Howard Millman
rarely lets things get syrupy,
though there are lapses.
When the teetotaling Ima
decides that sharing a glass of
wine for Shabbat won't harm
her Christianity, the moment
comes off more as "straitlac-
ed woman sips booze." In the
same vein, but more jarring,
is Millman's directing the ac-
tors to punch up the humor in
the early scenes in a style like
a TV sitcom. Thus Brietbarth
shrugs and shoots glances to
the audience to signal funny
moments. Thankfully, things
improve once Leah arrives,
and Breitbarth grows into a
creditable Haskell.
Arnold captures the con-
tradictions in Milton, a man
who can lend a hand to so-
meone he knows but cannot
relate to the agonies of Euro-
pean Jews in the abstract.
"You don't live there
anymore," he tells Haskell.
"You're here. Forget about it."
Jane Houdyshell's Ima is a
bustling mother hen, a deep-
ly caring friend and the most
fully realized character of the
four. Her fear at first seeing
Haskell, though, doesn't seem
as strong as she later
describes it.
The Immigrant is not, as
Harelik explains in a pro-
gram note, "an evening of
the Borscht Belt meets 'Hee
Haw.' " Nor is it a portrait of
the harsh travails most im-
migrants faced. But it is a
reminder that no one is sit-
ting in a comfortable theater
today but by the sacrifices of
our beloved, too seldom
remembered, ancestors. ❑
