It's curtain up for comedy revue Old Jews Telling Jokes, which begins performances at off-Broadway’s Westside Theatre on May 1. Created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, the show features five actors reinventing and paying tribute to classic jokes and comic songs. Marc Bruni directs the piece, which officially opens on May 20.
Marilyn Sokol, Bill Army, Todd Susman, Audrey Lynn Weston and Lenny Wolpe star in Old Jews Telling Jokes, inspired by the website OldJewsTellingJokes.com. It features both brand new and satisfyingly old songs and jokes. If you’ve ever had a mother, visited a doctor, or walked into a bar with a priest, a rabbi and a frog, Old Jews Telling Jokes will sit in the dark, give you a second opinion, and ask you where you got that.
