The show is a warm-hearted comedy set in 1991 on the North Side of Minneapolis! Silver’s Market has been a Jewish deli (now also selling collard greens and tortillas) and neighborhood institution for fifty years. When city inspectors threaten to close the place down, old friends Silvers, Chavez and Mooney (a Jew, a Mexican, and an African-American) are bound and determined to keep it open. Will they succeed? You KNOW they will, and how they do it will keep you laughing all night long!
The production was directed by Stage North artistic Director Peter Moore and featured long time Twin Cities favorites Michael Tezla as Silvers, James A. Williams as Mooney and playwright Minjares as Chavez. Pearce Bunting, Melanie Wermacher, Ian McCarthy and Domino D’Lorion rounded out the cast.
