Musicals in Mufti - Staged Concert Readings of Musical Theater Gems from the PastSYNOPSIS:
Based on Jack Rosenthal's award-winning 1976 BBC1 teleplay of the same name, Bar Mitzvah Boy
is a bittersweet musical comedy about a young Jewish boy who runs away from his Bar Mitzvah into which his parents have poured their efforts and money. Looking at the adult world, young Eliot Green doubts if he can cope with being a part of it. Rosenthal's hysterical story of a family's anxious build-up to their only son's Bar Mitzvah will resonate with many Jewish families, but this classic tale speaks loudly for any important family occasion -- whatever the religion.
Directed by Annette Jolles
