Jewish Theatre Workshop Opens THE CURIOUS SAVAGE Tonight

Jewish Theatre Workshop presents the first show of its eighth season, John Patrick's THE CURIOUS SAVAGE.

THE CURIOUS SAVAGE tells the tale of Mrs. Ethel P. Savage, who inherits a business empire worth ten million dollars from her husband. Wanting to create a "happiness fund" in his name to help people realize their dreams, no matter how foolish, she sells the family businesses and converts the cash to negotiable securities, concealing their location from her grown stepchildren. Believing the money to be their birthright, her stepchildren commit her to a "sanatorium" hoping to "bring her to her senses" and reveal the location of the money. There, she bonds instantly with the other "guests" of the institution who, believing in the justice of her cause, conspire with Mrs. Savage to confound her stepchildren and achieve her dream.

Directed by Etan Weintraub, with costume design by Marcia Norris and set design by Amalia Kotlicky, the production is overseen by stage manager Ariella McCown and assistant stage manager Ari Cane. The cast features:

The Guests: Kristin Hessenauer as Florence, Willie Drayton as Hannibal, Melissa Ostroff as Fairy May, Will Fleagle as Jeffrey, and Lisa Jacobs as Mrs. Paddy.

The Family: Nancy Blum as Mrs. Ethel P. Savage, Ron Zyna as Senator Titus Savage, Deb Carson as Lily Belle Savage, and Scott Ference as Judge Samuel Savage.

The Staff: Ariella McCown as Miss Willie and Avi Sonenthal as Dr. Emmett.

The show will run from tonight, February 7th through Sunday, February 17th, with Tuesday and Thursday performances starting at 7pm, Saturday performances starting at 8pm, and Sunday performances starting at 2pm. Tickets at the door are priced at $15 for adults, $10 for students and seniors. Tickets are available for pre-order online NOW until February 3rd on their website at, and receive a 20% discount.
