About the show: The Magic Soup presents stories taken from the rich Jewish folk tradition of Eastern Europe. In these short tales, everyone is looking for something, whether it’s a bowl of soup, a bit of peace and quiet, or the perfect pair of shoes. It is those with wit, humor and imagination who have the best chance of finding their dreams.
