OY! is a collection of eight 10-minute comedies, each illustrating the meaning of a Yiddish word -- with story lines including the untold stories of Eve and Adam, Einstein's demanding mother, the divorce trial of God and the human, the use of unkosher food as an aphrodisiac, and three men in a sauna who communicate using only the word "oy." Appealing to audiences of all faiths and all backgrounds, OY! is a tribute to the absurdity and comedy of the condition universal to everyone: that of being human. Learn More

This show is remarkable. Sherie Renee Scott is an incredible talent. It is a "small" show, so try not to pay full price. This is not to demean it in any way; it's just that it really is more a cabaret show than a Broadway show, and should not be charging B'way prices. So, of course, use Goldstar. It will delight you in many ways. She has a fabulous voice, the music is wonderful, the choreography is great, and she is very, very funny. Highly recommended. [extra added benefit: the occasional stars in the audience. The night I went, Jane Krakowski (from "30 Rock") was there!]

Everyday Rapture is the story of a young woman’s psycho-sexual-spiritual journey on the rocky path that separates her mostly Mennonite past from her mostly Manhattan future. Her life takes her from the cornfields of Kansas to the clover fields of New York (with a disturbing detour through YouTube). With a cast of five led by Sherie Rene Scott, Everyday Rapture also features songs made famous by David Byrne, Roberta Flack, U2, The Dap Kings and Judy Garland.
