Abstract

When Milk and Honey opened on Broadway in 1961, it presented a unique setting: the relatively new state of Israel. The musical superficially glorifies the future of an exciting new land. More deeply, we find “restorative nostalgia” for Israel’s biblical roots, stemming from sublimated grief and disavowal of the Holocaust.
