When No Choice

Is The Only Choice

Inspired by historical events surrounding Raquel Liberman, Bordello is the immigrant story of one heroic Polish woman who is forced into prostitution and risks everything to bring an international Jewish sex-trafficking ring to justice. With a musical palette that includes tango and klezmer, this never-been-told-before tale of love and bravery is set in the colorful world of Buenos Aires in 1920.
