A live concert performance of a song from the new musical BORDERS, which tells the story of a disillusioned Israeli soldier and a closeted Palestinian man who fall in love after meeting at a border checkpoint. Adapted from the 2006 film The Bubble by Eytan Fox & Gal Uchovsky, this daring new musical examines the borders we construct within society and within ourselves.
