New York City
Bajour is musical comedy based on the Joseph Mitchell short stories published in The New Yorker. “Bajour” is to gypsies the highest of all the arts, and refers to a
con game involving separating lonely older women from their savings. The show is about an
anthropology student at NYU whose doctoral study of nomadic gypsies brings her in contact with a
tribal leader, who needs to raise a dowry to purchase a bride from Newark’s Gypsy King for his son. Anxious to marry, this bride offers to stage a “bajour” to help finance it but complications ensue when she targets the student’s widowed mother.
