A priest, a rabbi and a frog walk into a bar... Direct from New York comes the comedy inspired by the Old Jews Telling Jokes website. Created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, the show features five local actors performing a mix of monologues and songs that lovingly honor the timeless tradition of Jewish comedy by poking fun at it. Hilarious neuroses and tributes to comedy giants are put on full display. If you don't laugh, you're probably dead -- even if you've never had a Jewish mother, visited a doctor or eat kosher.

A masterful portrait of the life of Douglass and the implications it has had on progress toward equality of black Americans. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing and the acting.
We had one major problem: Mr. Smith spoke into a hand-held mike that did not have enough amplification. We were sitting in the fifth row, and my husband who has hearing problems was able to hear only about half the show. We spoke to the house manager afterwards. He said that he had asked that the sound be turned up after complaints from Monday's audience, but that they had not done so enough. If you don't hear well, ask to be seated nearer the front!!!!! This would have been a very different review if my husband had written it. We attend this theater regularly, and he has never had problems like this before so it comes from choices made on sound for this production.
