SYNOPSIS: Isabelle (Izzy) Grossman lives in two separate worlds: at 33, she still hasn’t found the right partner, but she does work in the trendiest book store on the upper West Side of Manhattan, mingling with the literati at the job, and enjoying their flirtations after-hours. At the same time, she is loyal to her beloved grandmother who still lives on the lower east side, a place once steeped in old-world Jewish culture, and now gradually transforming to the needs of new generations of new immigrants. Her grandmother wants Izzy to settle down with “a nice Jewish boy.” This doesn’t match at all with Izzy’s upper west side self-image. ''Crossing Delancey,'' is about the process whereby Izzy finally figures out what’s really important in her life. Director, Joan Micklin Silver, and the writer, Susan Sandler (adapting her own play), manage to combine a nicely wry view of the modern world with the dreaminess of a fairy tale.
