Beginning July 9, The Second City Theatricals will present its newest production, “Jewsical! The Musical” at The Second City in Novi. The show runs through Sept. 7.
Originally directed by one of The Second City’s founding members, Sheldon Patinkin, “Jewsical! The Musical” is a humorous look at Jewish life and culture, utilizing classic scenes from The Second City’s archives as well as new material created by the next generation of the comedy world’s best and brightest writers and satirists. Scenes and songs include a musical ode to the online Jewish dating service J-Date, a visit to the country’s first Thai/Kosher fusion restaurant and Joseph and Mary’s session with a very confused marriage counselor.
“Jewsical! The Musical” is an entirely unique evening of comedy that celebrates all things Jewish and offers an irreverent look at the Jewish culture through scenes and music.
Tickets for “Jewsical! The Musical” are $15 on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and $20 on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets can be purchased over the phone by calling The Second City box office at 248-348-4448 or online at http://www.ticketmaster.com.
