American Stage Adds Extra Performance Week To Harmon's BAD JEWS Due To Popular Demand

Due to high demand, American Stage is proud to announce the extension of Joshua Harmon's BAD JEWS through August 12, 2018.

The night after their grandfather's funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal battle. In one corner is Daphna, a 'Real Jew' who is volatile, self-assured, and unbending. In the other corner, her equally stubborn cousin Liam, a secular and entitled young man, with his 'shiksa' girlfriend, Melody, in tow. Stuck in the middle is Liam's brother, Jonah, who tries to stay out of the fray as a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith, and legacy ensues in this biting comedy. Contains adult language.

The following includes information on the cast, production, performance dates, and ticketing information, as well as a listing of special events associated with the production.

Joshua Harmon'S plays include BAD JEWS (Outer Critics Circle and Lucille Lortel nominations, Best Play) and SIGNIFICANT OTHER, both of which had their world premieres at the Roundabout Theatre. BAD JEWS was the third most produced play around the country last season, was produced on the West End in London after productions at Theatre Royal Bath and the St. James, and has had productions in Australia, Canada, Israel, and South Africa. Fellowships include MacDowell, Atlantic Center for the Arts, NNPN/Actor's Express, SPACE at Ryder Farm, and the Eudora Welty Foundation.
