Lisa Pearl Rosebaum

Lisa Pearl Rosebaum is the author of the novel A Day of Small Beginnings (Little, Brown & Co. 2006) and Sacrificial Man, a novel of the McCarthy Era, which she is currently adapting as a play. Lisa is a long-time writer and dramaturg with The Braid and is a producer and host of Sunday With The Braid – performances and conversations with Jews whose work enriches the American experience. In 2021, her play, Stories from the Violins of Hope, directed and produced by The Braid, was streamed on Zoom to national and international audiences and later translated into Spanish and Portuguese for presentations in 15 Latin American countries. Performed with six actors and five musicians from the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony, it tells the story of a famed collection of stringed instruments that miraculously survived the Holocaust, and the family of violin-makers who brought them back to life. In November 2021, a filmed version of the play was shown at the United Nations.
