Storyline

Leo is a holocaust survivor who suffers from total amnesia; he comes to the U.S. and works as a hotel desk clerk. One night while a comedian, who owns a bar in the hotel, gives him a drink, he breaks out in song and discovers a great voice. Under a psychiatrist's treatment, and because of a blow to the head by some hoodlums, he realizes his name is David and that he was the son of a great Jewish Cantor, and gradually recovers his memory of losing his parents. He gives up a promising career singing in nightclubs to return to the synagogue. Written by R.Rotman <drama@showcase.ca>

Nice musical
4 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oysher has amnesia, and forgets that he was once a great singing star. He starts over as a nightclub singer, handled by Joey. Later on, he regains his memory and sings happily ever after. This is a chance to hear Oysher, one of the most famous cantors of all time, sing.
