    The play that inspired the hit film, Crossing Delancey is the story of Izzy, a beautiful, intelligent, single young woman, and her 80-year-old Bubbie, who is determined to see her granddaughter get married before she dies.  Giving Cupid a nudge, this irascible granny hires a matchmaker and sets out to find her granddaughter the perfect mate.  But will Sam, the neighbourhood pickle man, be the kind of man Izzy has in mind?  This hilarious and heart warming play takes a bemused look at the clash between traditional Jewish-American immigrant culture and the more modern aspirations of the next generation.
