In Susan Sandler’s warm and tender comedy, Crossing Delancey, we meet Isabelle Grossman, who is “living the dream”.  She has a rent-controlled apartment in New York’s Upper West Side, a job at a prestigious, independent bookstore, plenty of friends, and a handsome, local author to dream about.  None of this matters to her Bubbie, however, a strong-minded, fiercely loving, traditional Jewish grandmother, who worries about single Isabelle, “living alone in a room like a dog!”  Unbeknownst to Isabelle, Bubbie hires a marriage broker to save the day—and she is introduced to pleasant and unassuming Sam, who runs his own pickle stand on the Lower East Side.  Isabelle does not believe she could have anything in common with a pickle man, but just as she seems to be getting the attention of Tyler Moss—the highbrow writer after whom she has been hankering—Isabelle is blindsided by Sam’s subtle wit and wisdom. Can Sam persuade Isabelle to change her style, after all?  Will Bubbie cleverly maneuver them together?  Crossing Delancey is a charming, sly, and heartfelt story exploring the bonds of family and tradition; the culture clash of old East Side and new West Side, and the romantic benefits of a new hat. This beautiful story will have you laughing, shedding a tear, and rooting for true love!!
