Debra Erhardt- Jamaica FarewellLibrary: Downtown Library Boca Raton
The Huffington Post called it “Must see, unforgettable.” The Chicago Tribune said “very funny and fast-paced.” See how Jamaican storyteller Debra Ehrhardt achieved her teenaged dream of coming to the U.S. by smuggling $1 million from Kingston to Miami. This extraordinary show, directed by My Big Fat Greek Wedding’s Joel Zwick, has played around the country to massive acclaim.
After L.A.-based Debra Ehrhardt’s first show was produced at the Marilyn Monroe Theater in West Hollywood, it was optioned as a sitcom by Fox. A 2007 New York City Fringe Festival award-winner for “Jamaica Farewell,” Debra received a Proclamation from the city for her outstanding contribution to the Jamaican community. The show has been optioned by a major Hollywood producer, and Ehrhardt is adapting it for the big screen.
