Bad Jews. Is it:
a) A politically incorrect title for a play or
b) A show that’s been a major hit on Broadway and the West End, and Melbourne?
After a sellout Melbourne season last year, Aleksandar Vass and Vass Theatre Group along with Alex Theatre St Kilda are excited to announce the return of Broadway and West End hit Bad Jews to the Alex Theatre, St Kilda. Due to popular demand, the critically acclaimed, all-Australian production, Bad Jews returns from 27 April for a strictly limited season prior to commencing a National Tour to Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. Tickets are on sale now from Ticketek.
The play was widely embraced by Melbourne’s critics, Melbourne’s Jewish community and the greater Melbourne arts and theatre audiences. Now those who missed their chance have another opportunity to witness this hilarious, edgy black comedy.
Bad Jews features a tremendously talented Australian cast. Starring as the domineering Daphna is Maria Angelico (Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Under a Red Moon, Hating Alison Ashley, Wentworth, Rush, City Homicide, We Can Be Heroes). Simon Corfield (Packed to the Rafters, COPS, Crownies, The Birth of Creation, Songs for the Fallen) stars as Liam while his ‘shiksa’ girlfriend, Melody, is played by Anna Burgess (39 Steps, God of Carnage, Goodbye Miss Monroe, The Producers, Waiting for Godot, Neighbours, Last Man Standing, Thank God You’re Here). Matt Whitty (Foxfinder, About Tommy, Penelope) plays Jonah.
SEASON APRIL 27th – May 14th
