“You won’t succeed on Broadway if you don’t have any Jews!” – Spamalot

The Jewish legacy of musical theater – including such luminaries as Irving Berlin, the Gershwin brothers, Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Rogers and Hart, Stephen Schwartz and many more – lives on today as a uniquely American arts form…AND at Congregation Nevei Kodesh!

All are invited to a special program (and fundraiser) on Sunday, May 17, 6-9:30 pm, at Nevei Kodesh, celebrating the Jewish legacy of musical theater.  Live talent will include: singers Faye Nepon, Michelle Wolf, Rav Bracha, Jan Kirschner,  Jim Davis Rosenthal, Rachel Shannon, and others TBA, pianist Sheldon Sands, a narrative history by David Spiro and more. The evening will also include food, silent and live auction, and end with Broadway Karaoke. Dressing up for a Broadway Premiere encouraged (but not required) as guests get to walk the red carpet!     Tickets: $36 Broadway Maven/General Admission; $72 Broadway Star/Orchestra seats (first couple rows) and listed in our playbill.
