Leah's Train, by Karen Hartman, runs through March 22 at the Sabes JCC Theater.  After her family's Jewish matriarch Leah dies, Ruth is confronted with an increasingly fractured relationship with her mother, Hannah, with the abrupt abandonment of her boyfriend, and with the idealized legend of grandmother pervading her own life.  It is time for a change.  One train ride hurtles mother and daughter, friend and lover, grandmother and brother, through three generations of adventure, grief, and love.  Presented in collaboration with 20% Theatre Company, Thursdays and Sundays at 7:30 pm.  Tickets $5 - $25 (sliding scale, name your own price in that range), 952-381-3499 or tickets@sabesjcc.org.
