Bad Jews begins performances tonight at George Street Playhouse. Jessica Stone directs.

Joshua Harmon's family comedy is described as follows: "Liam is a self-proclaimed 'bad jew' — he may actually be an atheist. It's the night after their grandfather's funeral — Liam and his high-strung and unbending cousin Daphna are arguing over who should inherit Poppy's Chai necklace. The verbal battle rages until Liam stakes his claim to the heirloom, and a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith, and legacy ensues."

Featured in the cast is Maddie Jo Landers (Venus in Fur) as Melody, Laura Lapidus (Bad Jews at Chicago's Theater Wit) as Daphna Feygenbaum, Alec Silberblatt (Lungs) as Liam Haber, and Amos VanderPoel (Mozart in the Jungle) as Jonah Haber.

The creative team includes Charlie Corcoran (set design), Sarah Laux (costume design), Christopher J. Bailey (lighting design), and Drew Levy (sound design). The production stage manager is Libby Unsworth.

Performances continue through April 9.
