Directed by Luke Kanter, the cast features JD Barton, Will Branske, Dylan Chouinard, Pip Lilly, Chelsea London Lloyd, Alain Pierre and Rick Shattuck.

Love in the Time of Channukah, according to press notes, "tells the tale of Gayboi, a college freshman celebrating Channukah on his own for the very first time. With a motley crew by his side — funky bff, Neanderthal-lite homophobic roommate, studly str8 crush, flaming sidekick, and a fairy godperson — can Gayboi build a collegiate family of friends and find true love? A proper gay fantasia, sans Kushner."

Harmon wrote Bad Jews, which received both Outer Critics Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award nominations and will have its West Coast premiere at the Geffen Playhouse in summer 2015.

Akbar is located at 4356 W. Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Admission is free, but reservations are suggested at 6avenue.org.
