Oy Vey! A Night of Jewish Excellence for Hanukkah
Hosted By: The Lab Shul
Come celebrate the first night of Hanukkah with a very special show at 54 Below!
Jewish people have been an integral part of Broadway’s tapestry for as long as Broadway has existed. Some of our most celebrated works focus on or feature Jewish stories and experiences.
Often however, Jewish performers are not given the chance to be the ones to tell those stories.
But that’s not the case tonight!
Get ready to hear all your favorite songs from beloved shows like Fiddler on the Roof, Parade, Falsettos, and more, sung by Broadway’s best, brightest, and — you guessed it — Jewish-est!
With Anti-Semitism in North America at its highest peak in decades, we’re honored and excited to have a night dedicated to giving Jewish artists the stage. Music direction by Simone Allen, with piano accompaniment by Madeline Myers (for Samantha Massell only).
