VIDEO: The Cast of SOUL DOCTOR Gives Exclusive Performance and Interview With Salvador Litvak

Salvador Litvak of Accidental Talmudist recently chatted with the cast of Soul Doctor, as well as got to sit in on an exclusive performance. Check out the video below!

The biographical "Soul Doctor" The Musical tells the incredible story of real-life "singing rabbi" Shlomo Carlebach and his unlikely friendship with Nina Simone, the legendary jazz singer and civil rights activist. Together their music became an important voice of social change. A smash hit off-Broadway, this spirited San Diego production performs at the Lyceum Theatre April 3-22, 2018. Audiences and critics rave about this heart warming family musical.

From his beginnings in pre-world war II Germany to performing on the world stage with legendary artists, Nina Simone, the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane, Carlebach's journey inspired millions of people but at the same time it took a deep personal toll. "Soul Doctor" not only dramatizes his life as a Rabbi who travelled the world healing souls through his message of love and compassion, but it also provides timely insight into his unusual forays in interracial understanding. Carlebach's expansive perspective of Judaism and his open acceptance of less religious, secular Jews and the disaffected youth of the '60s was a monumental shift, leaving a legacy of soulful, loving music and a renewed Jewish community.

A smash hit off Broadway, this spirited San Diego production begins Tuesday, April 3 and will run for three weeks only at the Lyceum Theatre in downtown San Diego, the first stop on a major tour which heads to the Saban Theatre in Los Angeles, May 3- 13 and then to the Hirsch Theater in Jerusalem.
