Illinois Holocaust Museum Skokie, IL 847-677-3330, US

Charlene Brooks is bringing not just her voice and humor to the stage, but her heritage as well.
“Life Stinks!",.. and other things my mother taught me!, is the culmination of years of theater and cabaret shows singing classic Broadway, jazz, and songs in Yiddish and Hebrew. Brooks, the daughter of two Holocaust Survivors brings us her card-playing "aunts and uncles", Meyer the butcher, Sam the shoe-maker, and Mom, the funniest woman you'll ever meet. These and other very real over-the-top characters of her family and friends, are the inspiration for this deeply moving and often incredibly funny performance.
