This one-man music and monologue show by a Jewish Scottish 50+-ish rock 'n roller is great fun. It is far from perfect; pacing and lighting/setting could have been improved and he has a serviceable singing voice. But his lyrics are poetical and his poetry is lyrical and his ability to find the funny and wise is dead on. Go!
