When Prejudice Eclipses Pride

"After Crystal Night" explores Jewish identity with humor.

Don't be misled by the play's title. "After Crystal Night," a comedy-drama now at the Odyssey Theatre in West Los Angeles, is not a story about the November 1938 Nazi rampage. Not literally, anyway. The Kristallnacht connection is metaphorical; a reminder that what happened once in not-so-long-ago Nazi Germany could happen again if Jews grow too comfortable and passive -- even in America.
