Directed by Annette Jolles, the cast features Liz Larsen (Hairspray), Stuart Zagnit (Seussical), Bruce Sabath (Company), Alan H. Green (Spelling Bee national tour), Austin Miller ("Grease: You're the One that I Want!"), Chandra Lee Schwartz (Damn Yankees), Mary Gutzi (Les Miserables), Roger DeWitt (The Woman in White), Nick Verina (Altar Boyz-Chicago), J.D. Webster (Wonderful Town), Vanessa Lemonides (Jewtopia), Ron DeStefano (How to Suceed in White Plains), Ronica Reddick (The Underwear Musical, NYMF) and Felicia Ricci (The Chocolate Tree, NAMT). David Snyder is musical director for the production, which runs through Oct. 4. The Jerusalem Syndrome features book and lyrics by 2006 Kleban Award winners Laurence Holzman and Felicia Needleman and a score by Kyle Rosen. The musical, according to press notes, "brings to life the strange but real psychological phenomenon that makes ordinary tourists in Jerusalem come to believe they are figures from the Bible. When a host of characters including Noah, Jesus, God, and not one, but two Virgin Marys are led by Moses in an Exodus from the hospital psych ward, the result is a journey that is both hilarious and heartwarming.

Show times are Sept. 23 at 8 PM, Sept. 24 at 1 PM, Sept. 26 at 9 PM, Sept. 27 at 1 PM, Oct. 2 at 9 PM and Oct. 4 at 1 PM.
