Old Wicked Songs

Old Wicked Songs

  • Opening Date: September 5, 1996  

After a series of music lessons, Professor Mashkan’s verbal slandering towards the Jewish culture builds tension with his new student Stephen Hoffman. 

But soon it is clear that Mashkan’s defense mechanism covers up his own dark secret: he is a Holocaust survivor who would rather die than confront his demons.

"Mr. Marans… leavens sentimentality with intelligence, while working within an old-school, naturalistic framework. Old Wicked Songs is a tear-jerker, all right. But you'll have no reason to be ashamed of crying." - NY Times
