What are the moments that define our lives? Joey, a successful divorce lawyer, is used to things going his way. When he suddenly decides he needs a Bar Mitzvah he doesn't expect to have to wait, or take classes. But when he meets Michael, an acerbic rabbi with to-do lists of her own, what began as a simple bureaucratic checkbox becomes a deep immersion in the meaning of ritual, maturing, and friendship. Making its world premiere on the Pacific Theatre stage, Bar Mitzvah Boy is a sharp-tongued comedy about growing up… at any age.

In this two-person character study, Joey Brant (R. Emmett Lee, who more than adequately took on the challenge of learning to speak Hebrew for the part) is a Jewish divorce lawyer in his 60s who never had a bar mitzvah ceremony. For reasons which become clear in the story, Joey's bar mitzvah ceremony must take place at the synagogue he attended five decades ago where his grandson Ben Goldman will carry on the family tradition with his own bar mitzvah in a matter of months. Joey, a thoroughly secularized man, must now re-connect with the faith of his ancestors, but promptly alienates the synagogue's regular instructor. But when Joey goes to meet with the temple's new rabbi for his bar mitzvah lessons, he is shocked to find a woman is now in charge.
