About this show

Inspired by Nobel Prize winner I.B. Singer's whimsical tales of Chelm, the Village of Fools, this theatrical "jolt of Joy" features rollicking klezmer music, slapstick comedy, and a grand tale of mistaken identity. This musical, the hit of last season's Robert Brustein Residency, is fun for the whole family! Conceived & Adapted by Robert Brustein Based on the Play by I.B. Singer Music by Hankus Netsky & Zalman Mlotek Lyrics by Arnold Weinstein Directed by Nick Olcott
