Bad Jews

Bad Jews is a world-premiere comedy about the holy and the holier-than-thou. Daphna Feygenbaum is a Real Jew--just ask the Israeli boyfriend she met on Birthright. So when her cousin Liam brings home his shiksa girlfriend Melody and declares ownership of their grandfather's Chai necklace, it sparks a viciously hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy.

BAD JEWS was first performed at the inaugural Roundabout Underground Reading Series in February 2012. The play was chosen to be the seventh Roundabout Underground production where it opened to critical acclaim on October 30, 2012. The critics raved 'Bad Jews is delicious nasty fun' (New York Post), 'A very promising start by newcomer Joshua Harmon' (New York Magazine), 'Tracee Chimo is marvelous, her versatility is startling' (New York Times). The sold out run was extended two weeks and played its final performance in the Black Box on December 30, 2012. Original cast members Tracee Chimo, Philip Ettinger, Molly Ranson and Michael Zegen will return for the Off-Broadway run, with direction by Daniel Aukin.
