The economic ravages of '30s New York threaten to destroy the tenuous ties that bind a working-class family in social dramatist Clifford Odets' ("The Flowering Peach") acclaimed Depression-era drama. First produced in 1935, "Awake and Sing!" tells the passionate and ultimately hopeful story of the Bergers, a family of Jewish immigrants living in the Bronx, as they deal with the hardships of the era. Bessie, the Berger matriarch, is even prepared to crush her children's dreams in order to keep the struggling clan intact, but the irrepressible spirit of youth refuses to be extinguished in Odets' soaring, timeless ode to the American working class.

For the better part of his life, Yo-Yo Ma has become defined by the instrument he plays: the cello. He was born in Paris to a mother who was a singer and a father who was a music professor. Picking up music at an early age, Ma quickly became an adept cellists - performing to audiences at the ripe old age of five and playing for then President John F. Kennedy when he was seven. Later he would study at the famed Julliard School of Music before deciding to enroll at Harvard University. While studying music at these various instutions, Ma fell in love with classical arrangements but also with modern compositions - resulting in a unique take on music that blends old world sounds with modern tones. Ma is widely considered to be one of the most revered cellists of the 20th and 21st centuries.
