Sea of Reeds poses some curious questions. For instance: why would a staunch, lifelong atheist suddenly decide to go to Israel at the age of 52 to stage his own bar mitzvah? And what in the world does playing the oboe have to do with the Book of Exodus? You probably don't know the answers to either of those questions just yet, but in this brand-new comedy that is part monologue and part musical, Josh Kornbluth will take to the stage to shed some light on these offbeat topics. With an orchestra, his rabbi and his oboe in tow, Kornbluth delivers a unique night of entertainment with Sea of Reeds. Learn More

The host was obnoxious, the musical offerings were depressing and best and annoying at their worst ("Her skin is cinnamon! Her skin is cinnamon! Her skin is cinnamon!" sung over and over at the top of your lungs does not make a an enjoyable musical experience), the whole show was so uncomfortable that I laughed thinking it was supposed to be silly, but then realized the artists were really taking themselves seriously. The exceptions were the non-musical offerings: the comic-strip book critic, the author and the of the two comedians were highly entertaining and/or made us think (although Bobcat Goldthwait would probably agree on the poor quality of the show - even he was making fun of the experience). Oh, and the guy from Cake was great. (But the host kept trying to interject his own special touches instead of just letting the poor guy sing his own songs!)
Put me down as a curmudgeon - I just didn't get it.
