WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Shlomo The Musical is about the life and music of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Featuring music by Carlebach, a book by Daniel S. Wise, lyrics and direction by David Schechter, and additional material by Carlebach's daughter, Neshama Carlebach, the show tells the story of the foremost innovator in Jewish Music of the 20th Century, and one of the most pivotal, unconventional and controversial Jewish personalities of the post WWII generation. This musical celebration features over 40 of Carlebach's soulful and joyous melodies, and tells the true story of the rabbi/troubadour who ignited the spirit of Jews around the world with his music, stories and boundless love. As a child, he narrowly escaped from Hitler's Germany. Once in America, his next dramatic journey took him from the traditional yeshiva world to becoming the first emissary of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. In his astonishing rise as a music star in the 1960's folk scene, he shared the stage with legends like Bob Dylan, Nina Simone and the Grateful Dead. He reinvented the Jewish experience with "The House of Love & Prayer", his hippie commune in San Francisco. Beloved and controversial, Shlomo traveled the world mending broken hearts through his boundless love and joyous music. Today, his songs continue to inspire millions.
