Miriam the musical was conceived by Debbie and Alan in 2002 and has finally arrived on the stage with the assistance of Debbie’s sister Cheryl Friedman. The story covers the events in Miriam’s life from rescuing her brother Moses to delivering the Hebrew people at the door step of the Holy land. Through words, dance and song we witness Miriam saving the Jewish people through her ability to find water in the desert, her struggles with her family and personal life and her reckoning and finally finding understanding and peace with God.
