SOUL DOCTOR, the exhilarating, riveting and hilarious new Broadway-bound musical, tells the true story of the beloved and controversial father of popular Jewish music, Shlomo Carlebach.

Steve Margoshes, the legendary composer/orchestrator of such Broadway hits as Elton John�s Aida, The WHO�s Tommy and Smokey Joe�s Caf�, has woven together 30 of Carlebach�s timeless hit songs into a show that CNN�s Larry King described as �A transformative theatrical experience, with soul-stirring melodies and a story that keeps the crowd roaring with laughter and song all night long!

SOUL DOCTOR takes us on a musical odyssey through the challenges and triumphs of this cultural phenomenon: his childhood escape from Nazi Germany, becoming a rabbinical prodigy in America; discovering Gospel and Soul music during his unlikely friendship with Nina Simone; his meteoric rise as a �Rock Star-Rabbi� in the 1960s, performing with Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead; his struggle to reconcile his deep traditional roots with his desire to reach people of all backgrounds in the �free-love generation;� and his personal conflicts trying to keep his family together while traversing the globe as a �Soul Doctor,� bringing joy and song to the lonely, the searching and the brokenhearted.
