WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Entertainment Events Inc and Robert Dragotta presents the world premiere of Jewsical - The Chosen Musical in concert for one performance only. The show is from the creators of the smash hit musical Ruthless!, Joal Paley (book, lyrics and direction) and Marvin Laird (music). A.C. Ciulla (Footloose) choreographs. Featured in the cast are Toni Carington, April Henry, David Ruffin, Craig Sculli, and Adam Shapiro. He wants to be in show business. They want a Jew. His name is Christian Von Trapp. Oy! That's the premise of this hilarious new revue written by the delightfully irreverent minds of Paley and Laird. With a song list that includes "Yinglish 101," "I'm Farblondget and Farplotzed," "Borscht Belt Betty," and "Yenta from Tellabenda," to name just a few, this spontaneous, light-hearted revue celebrates the rhythms, culture, and hilarity of the chosen people, who like the rest of us in the world want to be in the "show business." THIS PERFORMANCE IS A CONCERT PRESENTATION WITH PALEY, LAIRD & THE CAST BEFORE THE SHOW HEADS TO FLORIDA PRIOR TO AN UPCOMING OFF-BROADWAY ENGAGEMENT.
