Casting has been announced for Old Jews Telling Jokes, which is co-created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent and will begin previews May 1 prior to an official opening May 20 at Off-Broadway's Westside Theatre.
The production, according to press notes, "showcases five actors in a revue that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present. Think you’ve heard them all before? Not this way. The show also features comic songs -- brand new and satisfyingly old – as well as tributes to some of the giants of the comedy world and to the brilliant raconteurs from OldJewsTellingJokes.com, the website that inspired the show."
The creative team also includes set and video designer David Gallo, lighting designer Jeff Croiter, costume designer Alejo Vietti and sound designer Richard Fitzgerald/Sound Associates.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
