On this week's Seekers of Meaning TV Show and Podcast, Cantor Ben Kintisch discusses his musical, "Life Review - The Hospice Musical."
Life Review: The Hospice Musical is a new musical celebrating life, love and loss through three seasons at a residential hospice. The story follows our young Rabbi David, the new chaplain at the facility. He arrives in autumn, eager and naive, caring but lonely. As he ministers to the patients, Rabbi David learns from his patients even as he cares for them. and their loved ones.
In Life Review: The Hospice Musical, each patient sings their story. We hear from a proud mother remembering snow, a brave but scared young man wondering what's to come, an older man looking for one last friend, and a man of God singing praises.
As the show's website puts it: "It's A Chorus Line meets Fiddler on the Roof."
