Ordinary Americans

Next date: Jan 18, 2020 - click here for time schedule - English

GableStage presents the world premiere of Ordinary Americans, a play by Joseph McDonough based on actual events in the lives of Gertrude Berg and Philip Loeb, stars of television’s groundbreaking sitcom, The Goldbergs, which premiered on CBS in 1949.

The Florida productions were co-produced by Palm Beach Dramaworks, where the show ran in December and now it plays at GableStage from Jan. 18 through Feb. 16.

The play is set in the early 1950s and centers on the tribulations faced by Berg and Loeb as they struggle to save their show, their careers, and their friendship in the face of McCarthyism, anti-Semitism, and the political climate of the country. Berg (1899 – 1966) was a seminal figure in American popular culture in the first half of the twentieth century and one of the most significant artists in television history, yet she is largely forgotten today. She was known to millions around the country as Molly Goldberg, a character she created for her 1929 radio show, The Rise of the Goldbergs, which aired first on NBC and later on CBS until 1945 (with a break between 1934 and 1938). In addition to starring as the matriarch of a Jewish family living in the Bronx, Berg wrote almost every script for the radio show and then for the TV series, which ran through 1957 on different networks. She was also the show’s producer, and the first recipient of an Emmy Award for Lead Comedy Actress.

Ordinary Americans was developed in The Dramaworkshop, and last January it received a reading at PBD as part of the first New Year/New Plays Festival.

Together they go in search of the light behind the darkness, although nothing is quite as it seems. Incorporating stop motion projections, puppeteering of the highest caliber and a story that challenges audiences to look at their own faults with honesty and acceptance, the production is a unique work of beauty.

"Church & State” by Jason Odell Williams.

Directed by Robert Coppel

Three days before his bid for reelection, in the wake of a school shooting in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, a Republican U.S. senator makes an off-the-cuff comment to a blogger that gets leaked on “the Twitter,” calling into question the senator’s stance on guns and God. As his devoutly Christian wife and liberal Jewish campaign manager try to contain the damage, this look at how religion influences politics and how politics has become a religion is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting.
