The Off-Broadway CSC production is produced by special arrangement with Bob Boyett. Walter Bobbie directs the tale of philosopher Spinoza, which features Richard Easton, Fyvush Finkel, David Garrison and Jeremy Strong, with Jenn Harris, Michael Izquierdo and Natalia Payne.
"Focusing on the 1656 interrogation of the noted philosopher Baruch De Spinoza by the Jewish community of Amsterdam for his controversial ideas, New Jerusalem examines the clash between religion and modernity that Jews, Christians and Muslims are still, some 350 years later, struggling to reconcile."
