Circumcise Me Announces Second Off-Broadway Extension

News   Circumcise Me Announces Second Off-Broadway Extension
Off-Broadway's Circumcise Me, the new comedy written by and starring comedian Yisrael Campbell, has extended its run a second time.

Tickets for the production at The Bleecker Street Theater are now on sale through May 16.

To celebrate the extension Ben’s Deli at 209 W. 38th Street will unveil The Circumcise Me “BRIS” – ket sandwich Feb. 17 at noon. The sandwich is sliced brisket and cole-slaw on rye bread with a pickle ("with the ends cut off, of course," according to a press statement) and chopped liver on the side.

Sam Gold directs the production, which is described as such: "Circumcise Me tells the true story of Yisrael Campbell, your average Irish, Italian, Catholic kid from Philly, who became a sober alcoholic, recovering drug addict, husband, father, reform, conservative, unorthodox, orthodox, Jewish comic actor. In his New York theatrical debut, Yisrael (born Christopher) takes the audience on an extraordinary spiritual, creative, and hysterically funny journey including, ouch, three circumcisions along the way."

The creative team includes scenic and video designer Aaron Rhyne and lighting and sound designer Perchik Kreiman-Miller.

Bleecker Street Theater is located at 45 Bleecker Street, just east of Lafayette Street. Tickets for Circumcise Me are available by visiting Telecharge at or by calling (212) 239-6200.
