WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Drama Desk nominee Eric Anderson (Kinky Boots) stars as the beloved yet controversial father of popular Jewish music, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach! After his childhood escape from Nazi Germany, the young Rabbi formed an unlikely friendship with legendary jazz singer Nina Simone, who introduced him to soul and gospel music. Fusing his roots with his new found inspiration, Shlomo created a revolutionary musical sound, writing songs that became instant standards. As a "Rock Star Rabbi" of the 1960s, he struggled to harmonize his traditional beliefs with the "free love" generation. Today, his uplifting music and message help to define America's most defiant era.
Featuring over 30 of Shlomo's timeless hits, Soul Doctor is an exhilarating musical journey through the triumphs and tribulations of a cultural phenomenon.
A limited number of $30.00 general rush tickets will be available at the box office only beginning at 10am for that day's performance(s) only. Limit 2 per person on a first-come / f
