DAVID MICHAEL FINKELSTEIN'S BAR MITZVAH: THE MUSIC COMEDY IN CONCERT, January 27 at 7PM:

David Michael Finkelstein's Bar Mitzvah, a new musical comedy by Sue Fabisch (Motherhood the Musical). "The musical by the talented Fabisch, who wrote the book, music and lyrics for this...provides the audience a ringside seat for an evening of unabashed hilarity." - Huffington Post. You know that group of relatives that you don't want to invite, but you have to anyway? Well, they're all here. Join us for the concert version of this all original new musical comedy, where the story takes place, well, at a Bar Mitzvah. Ruth, the matriarch of the bunch is the overbearing Jewish mother, butting into everyone's business - especially her daughter Sarah. Poor Sarah is just trying to make it through the event without one more person commenting on why she's not married yet. And father Irv rounds out the trio as he pretends he can't hear a word of what his wife is saying. Along comes Cousin Barry and his "girlfriend" Gina, a beautiful Italian manicurist, which of course leaves everyone confused because they all thought that Barry was gay! And then there's Matthew, the mystery man...who's also, (wait for it) a doctor! After two successful runs in New Jersey (The Warehouse and The Forum Theatre) the crazy relatives are here and ready to talk behind your back. Sue Fabisch is the author of Motherhood the Musical which has played to sold-out houses around the US as well as in Scotland and in a two-year tour around Australia. She is the writer (book, music and lyrics) of David Michael Finkelstein's Bar Mitzvah.

They competed against one another on Survivor, but now the Broadway Boyfriends are back and joining forces to bring their talents to 54 Below. Join us for an evening of Broadway tunes that have either lasted throughout the years or were "voted off the island"; perhaps some stories about what it was like trying to Survive on a hit reality TV show more cut-throat than a men's ensemble dressing room; but certainly and most importantly, an evening a fun, frivolity and a Broadway guest star or two! On the show, Josh and Reed had to get by on a diet of mostly rice and fish, but you'll get to enjoy the delicious menu of 54 Below while taking in this unique evening of entertainment.
