Kicking off the sixth season of Roundabout Underground, Bad Jews is a world premiere comedy by Joshua Harmon about the holy and the holier-than-thou. Bad Jews is directed by Daniel Aukin
. Previews performances began on October 5, 2012 and the show will open officially on Tuesday, October 30, 2012. This is a limited engagement through December 16, 2012. Get a first look at the production in the photos below!
Daphna Feygenbaum is a Real Jew—just ask the Israeli boyfriend she met on Birthright. So when her cousin Liam brings home his shiksa girlfriend Melody and declares ownership of their grandfather’s Chai necklace, it sparks a viciously hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy.
Due to strong language, Bad Jews may not be suitable for younger audience members. We recommend this show for ages 14 and up.
Major support for this production provided by Jodi and Dan Glucksman. New plays are supported by Roundabout Leaders for New Works: Alec Baldwin, Linda L. D’Onofrio, Jodi Glucksman, Sylvia Golden, Caryn and James Magid, Laura Pels International Foundation for Theatre, Laura S.
