Cast of OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES Set for NEW YORK LIVE Today
Watch what happens today when off-Broadway's OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES and WNBC TV's Ben Aaron sit down over deli sandwiches on "New York Live," 12:30 -1 PM on Channel 4.
Producers announced yesterday at the off-Broadway production will close on Sunday September 15. A Chicago production will begin performances at the Royal George Theatre on September 24 and open on October 2.
Created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES is directed by Marc Bruni and showcases five actors in a revue that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present. 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 OldJewsTellingJokes.com, the website created by Sam Hoffman that inspired the show. If you've ever had a mother, visited a doctor, or walked into a bar with a priest, a rabbi and a frog - OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES will sit in the dark, give you a second opinion, and ask you where you got that.
The rest of the creative team is David Gallo (Set and Video Design); Alejo Vietti (Costume Design); Jeff Croiter (Lighting Design); Peter Fitzgerald/Sound Associates (Sound Design); Steve Channon (Animation) and Adam Wachter (Musical Supervision and arrangements). It is produced by Daniel Okrent andPeter Gethers, and Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel, Steven Baruch and Marc Routh.
